While we are fortunate that the fashion for big & bold, flashy & opulent has seen its day in Barolo, that doesn't mean that every traditionally made Barolo manages to achieve the harmony and elegance that we seek—but Brezza delivers.

The wines from this address have always been good, but they've become truly fine in recent years. Enzo is the driving force behind the huge step up in quality that this old estate has taken in the past decade or so, as well as their conversion to organic viticulture. He makes unfailingly honest and delicate wines of purpose.

Brezza's wines are all from hand-harvested estate fruit and are fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts. The Baroli are aged in 3,000L untoasted Slavonian oak botti. None of the wines are fined or filtered. The results are classic beauties of red fruit and charm.

WE 95
"Pressed rose, camphor, star anise and dark-berry aromas slowly take shape on this full-bodied red. Firmly structured, the palate delivers ripe Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and tobacco set against a backbone of noble tannins and vibrant acidity. It still needs several years to fully integrate." -Kerin O'keefe
