The Brezza vineyards mostly lie in and around the small town of Barolo, the rest are located in Novello, Monforte d’Alba and two vineyards for Barbera and Nebbiolo d’Alba, the ‘Santa Rosalia’ site, are on the way up to Alba. In Barolo, a couple of hectares are taken up by Brezza’s famous Hotel Barolo and its wonderful ristorante.
A blend of fruit grown from family owned vineyards in the communes of Barolo (San Lorenzo and Fossati), Novello (Ravera) and a 480m asl vineyard in Monforte d’Alba (Bricco San Pietro) and with a mix of east and west exposures. This is a wine that has always been produced by the Brezza family, even when the rise of single cru bottlings began in the 1970s. The result is a more fragrant/ethereal and approachable Barolo than the single crus but holds some wonderful structure due to the mix of communes and in turn the different and varying soils types.
Juicy and generous, this delicious red opens with aromas of dark-skinned berry, fragrant blue flower and baking spice. On the round, almost creamy palate, refined tannins and fresh acidity accompany juicy raspberry, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of eucalyptus. Just lovely.
