Meet the maker tasting - Enzo Brezza 04/03/2016La Cantina
Brezza's 2012 Barolo range in Oz! - SOLD OUT -
The Brezza family, known for the hospitality of their hotel right in the village of Barolo, have convincingly moved into the upper ranks of producers with a decade of consistently high-marked wines, all the while staying true to their traditionalist roots. Concrete tanks, long macerations (around 30 days) and not a new oak stave in sight, characterize the gentle, traditional flow in the cellars beneath the Hotel Barolo.
The fourth generation of the Brezza family now manages the estate.
Winemaker / Manager Enzo brezza is always improving his wine making skills and knowledge, drawing on various international collegues from California and Australia, namely Joe Grilli at Primo Estate. Enzo is also a regular host to for young winemakers coming to do vintage there. The sum of this knowledge has been mostly to eliminate faults and to gradually tweak an essentially traditional style Barolo, along with Barbera and Dolcetto, to greater levels of vibrancy and clarity. The wines are now very much like those of his cousin Maria-Teresa Mascarello, just a couple of hundred metres down the road. While the centrepiece here are the Barolo wines, from the surrounding famous vineyards of 'Sarmassa' and the great 'Cannubi', everything makes for a great tasting.
