BAROLO DOCG 2013 CASTELLERO 2013 2019 95/100

If you are looking for a Barolo which doesn’t follow fashion and trends ask Brezza. Since 1885, a family who honored itself in the tradition and precision to express its terroir and its wine. Already well known in Barolo for their “crus” Cannubi and Sarmassa, they surprised us with this Barolo 2013 Castellero. A wine which smell of the tradition at its purest: under bush roses, wild strawberries and liquorice, tree bark, herbs and coffee. 2013 distinguished itself as a classical year in the palate and the wine represents its essence. Fresh and savory, with tannins nicely present for an elegant balance. A wine to open today or to have it rest in your cellar for posterity.

All excellent wines presented by Enzo. Wines that do not follow a fashion, by definition frivolous and fleeting. From Dolcetto to Barbera, to arrive to Nebbiolo in a crescendo of wines of great solidity, reflecting well the essence of the names and territory. Very interesting all Barolo; by Cannubi, fine, elegant and eye-catching, the more energetic Castellero, to be finished by Sarmassa, which was during our tasting the most appreciated. A son of the wine of the vintage 2012, powerful features, with its dense and vigorous tannins, but very elegant. The best of this vineyard is finished in this wine, which struck us in particular, one of the best we have tasted in years. Complex, fine, slowly it opens on floral and spicy notes, but then you intrigued by the depth and structure. Persistent with a long pleasant and balsamic finish.

The wines of Brezza are classic wines in the noblest sense of the term. A term that is even more noble, then if the wines in question are Barolo. It is always very good the Sarmassa, but this year stands out the Castellero vineyard which has already reached a good balance. In the glass garnet color with ruby flashes. On the nose you have a spicy veil that immediately give way to floral notes of pink and purple geranium. Afterwards the fruit has a foreground of cherries and wild strawberries, with a note of licorice. Elegance for sale and long persistence of taste.
