|Availability:||In stock (9)|
The Brezza family has owned and operated their winery and vineyards since 1885. Four generations have worked these vineyards just outside the village of Barolo, along with the Restaurant & Hotel. The vineyards here are farmed organically and all wines are hand-harvested. The reds are made from traditional Piedmontese varietals, and the only white is made from Chardonnay.
The Cannubi vineyard is perhaps the most historic cru in all of Barolo. The wines here were famous long before the Barolo name was widely known, and the region merges the Sant’Agata fossil marl & Diano sandstone soils. The wines here are perfumed, elegant in structure, complex, and distinctive.
The Brezza Cannubi Barolo is made from vines of 100% Nebbiolo, planted in 1994 & 2003, and grown on southeast-facing slopes. The grapes are carefully selected and transported to the winery in small plastic baskets, where they are immediately destemmed and crushed before moving to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After frequent pumpovers, the wine moves to cement vats for malolactic fermentation, before settling in large, neutral Slavonian oak casks for 2 years before an additional year of bottle aging.
Notes of Marasca cherry, strawberry compote, licorice & baking spice abound, with aromas of rose & woodland berries. This is a fantastic bottle for a gift or special occasion, and will age beautifully for years to come.
