Brezza remains one of Piedmont’s great undiscovered gems. The estate’s Barolos, made in a rigorously traditional style, show tons of vintage and vineyard character in the classic, mid-weight style that is the signature of traditionally made Barolos from the village of Barolo. Brezza offers a beautiful window into the fascinating world of traditional Barolo. If you truly love that style, these are wines you will definitely want to enjoy and collect.
Grapes from outside the Barolo area. One year in large oak. A vertical style of Nebbiolo, clean and precise with hints of violet, liquorice and orange peel. Delicious. ( CR 16 )
From vines located close to Alba, at the Localita Santa Rosalia between the Barolo & Barbaresco zones, hence being a Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC. Reflecting the coolly focussed 2013 vintage, aged in 15 & 30hl botte grande and released after a year, it’s had time to evolve, giving orange peel ‘seniority’. Drinking but will evolve in bottle for a few years yet. ( DGB )
