Barolo Cannubi Giacomo Brezza 2016 shows a bouquet of candied cherry and blood orange that rises above spices, smoke and tar. Barolo Cannubi Giacomo Brezza offers the classic playlist of Barolo aromas, and has that light touch that underlines the elegance and sober qualities of Nebbiolo and CRU Cannubi. Only 8,793 bottles
The Brezza winery, which owns part of the renowned Cannubi vineyard and other beautiful sites around the town of Barolo, has been bottling since 1910. Today it is run by Enzo Brezza and his cousin Giacomo, the fourth generation of the family. Brezza wines are icons of traditional winemaking: organic viticulture, long macerations and aging in large barrels. This transparent style, applied consistently and neatly across the different bottlings, allows site differences to be made clear, without oak aromas or rusticity getting in the way.
The Sarmassa Cru is located on the opposite side of the main Barolo ridge from the Cannubi, yet it has a distinct microclimate… it is the first area where the snow melts in winter. The wines that are born there are more structured than those of Cannubi.
