The 1.4-hectare vineyard in the prestigious Cru of Cannubi was planted in 1994 with further plantings in 2003, and has been organically farmed since 2010. A well-respected vineyard area since 1752, it is in Cannubi that two of the four important geological formations that characterize the area of Barolo merge: the Fossil Marl, comprising mainly fine silty and clay sediment; and the Diano Sandstone, which consists of compact sand alternating with grey sandstone. The vineyard soil composition is silt 39.5%, sand 36.9%, and clay 23.6%. The Guyot-pruned vines are planted with a south-easterly orientation and are planted at a 250-metre elevation. The vines are Lampia and Michet clones, which are grown on rootstocks K5BB and 420A. Planted at a density of 3,700 vines per hectare, they are carefully cultivated by hand, with green harvesting and thinning to control yields and increase flavor concentration. In accordance with organic viticulture, copper and sulfur are used when necessary; herbicides and pesticides are not employed. Manually harvested.

The Brezza family owns 12.5 hectares of vines split between the commune of Barolo (in Cannubi, Castellero, and Sarmassa), the two-hectare Santa Rosalia estate just outside the Barolo DOCG zone between Diano d’Alba and the town of Alba itself, and two further plots in Monforte d’Alba and Novello. Throughout the vineyards, the family practices an environmentally friendly approach to viticulture and the estate has been certified organic since the 2015 vintage. In the cellar, winemaker Enzo Brezza follows a traditional approach with minimal intervention. To maintain freshness and purity, many of the wines are bottled with glass Vinolok closures.
