The structure of the soils in this vineyard is very similar to that of the nearby Sarmassa hill, thus to one of the most outstanding vineyard sites in all of Barolo. Where this vineyard suffers a bit, however, compared to Sarmassa, is its less favourable exposure. This results in a lighter style of wine, with a more forward character, and requiring less cellaring.
The method of vinification is that given to wines of the prestigious estate subzones, with brief macerations.
Among the different examples of Barolo produced by the Brezza estate this wine is perfect for the consumer who wants to experience for the first time the complex world of Barolos. Though of lighter structure and body, it boasts a rich bouquet and even in its youthfulness displays true elegance.
