Brezza Nebbiolo Langhe 2020

A smooth and aromatic Nebbiolo with notes of red
berried fruits layered with rose, violet, citrus and orange
peel. Vibrant on the palate with a lifted 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’s 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 fruit.


Tasting Note
A wonderful expression of youthful Nebbiolo, with an aromatic bouquet of red
berried fruits layered with rose, violet, citrus and orange peel. Fresh, with great purity
and a smooth texture through to a lifted finish.
