Brezza Barolo 2011 - Red
Barolo from Brezza is made of Nebbiolo grapes grown on a soil that is similar to the very nearby and prestigious Sarmassahill. The only difference to the Barolo Sarmassa is the slightly less favorable exposure in a westerly direction that makes this ordinary Barolo a little bit "lighter" than the Sarmassaversion. It can be drunk younger than the more exclusive Sarmassa.

Presentation of the vineyard
Azienda Agricola Brezza is one of the big names when talking Barolo wines. The vineyard is located very close to the village of Barolo, just south of the town of Alba in Piedmont. The vineyard dates back to 1885 and takes its name from Giacomo Brezza who along with his father Antonio, started bottling the wine for the first time in 1910. Today is the 4th generation Brezza that runs the business which today extends over 16.5 hectares vineyards. 12.5 hectars in Barolo, 1 in the municipality of Monforte, 1 in the municipality of Novello and 2 hectars in Alba. 80,000 bottles of wine are produced every year.
Garnet red color with orange-red tint. Aromas of ripe cherry and rose petals. Complex hints of tar, licorice and leather. A robust well-balanced and elegant taste with a sweet fruitiness. A great Barolo at a great price to be drunk to a nice dinner, preferably based on the game or red meat.
