What happens when you take the Dolcetto grape and plant it where Nebbiolo is planted for Barolo? You end up with one of the single most fascinating and enjoyable wines in all of Piedmont. 45-yr old vines planted on a steep hillside in Serralunga next to the famed Ca' Mia's Brea Nebbiolo vineyard. This Dolcetto is only produced in certain vintages, and has only been done so 11 times in 27 years. There will not be any Solatio produced in 2010 or 2011. This wine will age gorgeously thanks to concentrated, mineral-inflected fruit, and a serious spine of refreshing acidity that keeps everything fresh and composed. Leave it to Brovia to change the rules of the game, and surprise everyone with epic results!
