|BAROLO RISERVA DOCG 2013 SARMASSA VIGNA BRICCO||2013||2019_How to have an Italian Christmas||
The Sarmassa vineyard lies just across the top road into Barolo from its more famous neighbour Cannubi, and Enzo Brezza’s Vigna del Bricco Riserva comes from the finest, south-facing slopes of this cru. 2013 was a lovely vintage in Barolo: a cooler summer leading to wines of exceptional aromatic profile and understated structure. Just 2,500 bottles of this elegant, Burgundian-style interpretation were produced. Drinking Window 2022 - 2035

"OUTSTANDING: 18,5/20 PTS (Ian D'agata 18,5; Michael Garner 18,5; Emily O'Jare 18,5) A bastion of traditionally made wines, Barolo lovers know that there are fewer surer bets than the wines of Enzo Brezza. Besides oustanding Freisa, Dolcetto and arbera wines, his different, site-specific Barolos are standard-bearers for Nebbiolo and the DOCG. This Sarmassa is the biggest and fleshiest given the cru's warmer microclimate and higher clay content - in better vintages a Bricco Sarmassa bottling is also made from the best situated vines - neatly distinguishing it from Brezza's Barolo Cannubi (sleeker due to a higher sand content in the soil) and the Castellero which falls stlylistically between. Ian d'Agata: Bright penetrating aromas of red cherry and bergamot. Mounting tannins will require patience before broaching, but this is a promision, well-balanced wine. Michael Garner: Broad, fresh, ripe an drosy. Sweet berry fruit with rose and mint perfumes. Fresh, ripe and round with mouthwatering acidity. Very good structure with frim but ripe tannins. Oerfumed, floral finish. Emily O'hare: Beautiful, expressive and fine tannin's, aromatics and flavors. Medium-bodied, high -arching palate. Excellent! Drin: 2018-2030 Alc: 14,5%"
