Region: Barolo - Piedmont, ITA
A staunch traditionalist, Enzo Brezza heads the operation here, crafting incredible wines from the small cellar located in the centre of the Barolo township. The estate has vineyard holdings dating back to 1885, with long maintained organic practices in the vineyard now being officially certified. The wines here are clearly aligned to the traditional style of Barolo. The wines see only large format oak and long maceration time on skins. Finesse, elegance, and transparent communication of unique soil types throughout commune are the hallmark characteristics that the estate is known for.
Brezza has significant Nebbiolo holdings in the remarkable ‘Cannubi’ and ‘Sarmassa’ vineyards however of even more interest are the Barbera vines located in Cannubi and the Dolcetto vines located in San Lorenzo, locations usually not reserved for so called ‘lesser’ varieties, meaning extreme value can be find right across the spectrum of the estate’s offering.
Cannubi is often referred to as the most important vineyard in the region. Indeed, the Brezza plot sits in the historical heart of it, lying on a mixture of clay, silt and sandy soils. A timeless classic for all cellars.
