Estate: The Brezza family has been making wine in Piemonte since 1885. The 31 hectare estate has 20 hectares of organically farmed vineyards in the Barolo commune.
Philosophy: “The best way to represent the uniqueness of our terroir in our wines is to stay in constant harmony with the land and its fruits.”
Winemaking: Grapes are from a vineyard 25+ years in age on western facing slopes, spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts in stainless steel, bottled in the spring and intended “to represent Nebbiolo in its youth”. The label depicts the poppy flower seen across the Langhe hills in June.
Tasting Notes: Brilliant ruby red in colour with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, rose petal, a bit of white pepper, tarry earth and a trace of nutmeg. Cherry, strawberry, raspberry, rose petal, fried sage and a vein of tarry earth glide atop silky, firm tannins and fresh acidity. Red fruit and peppery spice linger on the plush finish.
