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.
Dark cherry, pine, mint, blood orange and spices give the 2013 Barolo Castellero much of its exotic, resonant personality. Beams of tannin and acidity add to the wine's energetic personality. The 2013 could use a few years to soften, but it is quite tasty, even today. The Castellero is the most impressive of these 2013s today. Rating: 92 Points; Antonio Galloni
