Brezza Cannubi Barolo 2017

A wine of great charm and elegance, with textured notes
of wild berries, cassis and delicate highlights of violet and
liquorice through to a long, silky finish.
Producer Note
The Brezza family own 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. In order to maintain freshness and
purity, many of the wines are bottled with glass Vinolok closures.

Vineyard
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 which characterise the area of Barolo merge: the Sant’Agata Fossil Marl,
comprising mainly fine silty and clay sediment; and the Diano Sandstone, which
consists of compact sand alternating with grey sandstone. The vineyard’s 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 250 metres’ 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 the flavour
concentration. In accordance with organic viticulture, copper and sulphur are used
when necessary; herbicides and pesticides are not employed. Manually harvested.
Winemaking
This wine was made organically with minimal sulphur. The must was fermented followed
by maceration lasting a further 10 to 15 days, where it underwent frequent pump-over
to submerge the cap, extracting colour, flavour and tannins. The wine was racked and
underwent malolactic conversion in cement vats at 18°C. The wine was then
transferred to Slavonian oak barrels of 15 to 30 hectolitres, where it matured for 24
months. The wine was bottled, numbered (only around 9,000 were produced) and
cellared for one year at 15°C prior to release.
Tasting Note
A wine of great charm and impressive structure, offering intense notes of wild berries,
cassis and delicate highlights of herbs, violets, liquorice and dried ginger. Elegant, with
a long, smooth finish.
