The sole white wine of the estate is produced in the Roero district from an 0.80 hectare plot in Vezza d’Alba. The soil is essentially sandy in composition and sits at 340 meters altitude on south-facing slopes. The vineyard was planted in 1980. Harvest (manual) normally occurs in mid-September. The grapes are completely destemmed and briefly macerate before fermentation begins at controlled temperatures (around 15 degrees Celsius) for two to three weeks. The wine rests in stainless steel until the early spring months of the following year and is usually released to the market, after several months of bottle aging, in late summer/early fall. It is unfined and unfiltered.

A perfect encapusulation of Roero Arneis, the Brovia shows a mineral spine with notes of stone fruit and citrus. While much Piedmont Arneis is decidedly neutral or subject to heavy new oak treatment, Brovia's version gracefully expresses its Roero origins with balance, intensity, length, and concentration.
