The Brezza private estate lies next to the small town of Barolo. The estate extends over twenty-two hectares, of which sixteen and a half are vineyards, some dating back to 1885. The wines are all certified as DOCG or DOC. The private estate takes its name from Giacomo Brezza, who with his father Antonio bottled the first wine of the estate in 1910.
The fourth generation of the Brezza family now manages the estate; sixteen and a half hectares of vineyard are located within the estate - twelve and a half in Barolo, one in the commune of Monforte, one in the commune of Novello, and two in Alba.

This wine is made to enhance the freshness and elegance of the Nebbiolo grape. The fermentation with maceration lasts from 6 to 10 days, after this wine is kept at 18-20 °C 64-68 °F, to facilitate the malolactic fermentation. Langhe Nebbiolo come from our vineyards in Barolo; is aged only in stainless steel and in spring it is bottled and ready for the market. We want this wine to represent Nebbiolo in its youth, we use only a glass closure and the label depicting a poppy flower common in Langa. In June where the hills turn red and makes your imagination soar on wings of freshness.
This wine displays a nose of primary aromas (floral, rose, violet, and citrus hints of orange peel), lighter on the palate and relatively easy to drink. It adapts more easily to pairing than an austere Barolo, but will pair with a lighter summer menu and is great even with fish. It stands up well to a certain aging although it is preferable to enjoy relatively young.
