Tasting Note:

From the latin for “Union” Unio is a unique blend of Brovia's Barolo Crus. With 50% less crop than usual, making the full range was always going to be a challenge. As a result they decided to make just one wine. They tasted all of the cuvees in the cellar blind over three days, selecting the creme de la creme for the final blend and selling the rest off in bulk. A nose of red fruit and fresh herbs, on the palate energetic and flowing. Clean, clear flavours. Notes of red berries, cherry, alpine herbs and pepper spice. This is layered and complex yet juicy and lively. An elegant and intense Barolo that, although very open and alluring, has enough in reserve to suggest a good 10-15 years ageing capacity
