Brezza Nebbiolo Langhe 2020

A silky and aromatic Nebbiolo with notes of red berried
fruits layered with rose, violet, red liquorice and orange
peel, dry and salivating on the finish.
Producer Note
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. In order to maintain freshness and
purity, many of the wines are bottled with glass Vinolok closures.
Vintage
Winter was mild with few rainfall and snowfall events. March and April were marked by
fine weather and mild temperatures with little rainfall. However, in May a considerable
number of rainy days started an unstable period which continued through to late June,
although the rainfall did prevent hydric stress in the vines. In general, climatic
conditions were ideal throughout summer. A drop in temperatures in some areas in
early September delayed the harvest.
Vineyard
The grapes come from a two-hectare vineyard that was planted in 1991. Located
around the town of Barolo, it has been organically farmed since 2010. Situated at 300
metres’ elevation, the vines are planted at a density of 3,700 vines per hectare and
have a westerly orientation, capturing the afternoon sunshine. The Nebbiolo vines are
the Lampia clone and are grown on rootstock K5BB. Guyot pruned and espalier
trained, the vines are carefully cultivated by hand, with green harvesting and thinning
taking place to control yields and increase the concentration of flavour in the grapes.
Green manure is employed to enhance the vitality of the soil and the cuttings from the
grass cover crops are left on the soil, to help increase the nutrient value. In accordance
with organic viticulture, copper and sulphur are used when necessary; herbicides and
pesticides are not employed. Harvest takes place by hand.
Winemaking
Produced to showcase the youthful expression of Nebbiolo. The selected grapes were
destemmed, crushed and placed in stainless steel tanks where fermentation took
place at controlled temperatures. Maceration lasted between six to 10 days. The wine
then underwent malolactic conversion at 18 to 20°C, before being aged in stainless
steel until the following spring. The wine was made organically, with minimal addition of
sulphur and without the influence of oak to fully express the purity of the fruit.
