Garblèt Sue is a subsection of the cru of Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto. At a height of 250 meters, this vineyard is the lowest of the Brovias' three crus in Castiglione Faletto. The vines for this wine are also the youngest, having been planted in 1970 and 1979. Soils here are of sand and clay-limestone marl, but they are richer and less well-drained than those higher on the hill in Fiasco proper. Brovia owns 0.7 hectares of western-exposed Nebbiolo here. If Garblèt Sue typically shows a hair's breadth less complexity than its two Castiglione Falletto brethren, it compensates with a generous, exuberant personality and a tendency to drink better earlier.

Aromas of camphor, rose and violet mingle with woodland berry and forest floor on this fragrant, gorgeous wine. Full-bodied and all about elegance, the savory palate features strawberry compote, juicy red cherry and licorice alongside taut, refined tannins. Bright acidity keeps it vibrant and well balanced. Drink 2023-2030.
