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.
Aromas of camphor, liquorice, ground clove, balsamic herb and a whiff of rose lead the way in this firmly structured, impressive red. The full-bodied palate shows structure, tension and finesse, offering Marasca cherry, pomegranate, star anise and tobacco set against taut, tightly knit but refined tannins. Drink 2023–2035.

Barolo. Tasted blind. Mid ruby. Concentrated yet fresh cherry nose. Supple, concentrated and powerfully structured yet perfectly aligned with the ripe fruit. Gorgeous balance, vibrancy and grip. Rating: 17.5 Points; Wine Spectator
