Blog: Giacomo Brezza & Figli | Piedmont




The Brezza family of winemakers is already in its fourth generation in the municipality of Barolo in Piedmont. Together with his wife, Enzo Brezza runs a cozy hotel and restaurant in addition to the vineyard. The winery produces 90% red wines, which were first bottled in 1919 by Giacomo Brezza together with his father Antonio. The vineyards cover a total of 23 hectares, of which 18 hectares of vines are located in Barolo (15ha), Alba (2ha) as well as Monforte (1ha). The old wine cellar - a traditional round brick vault - was once used for the entire winemaking cycle and is now used to store the wines in oak barrels. Accordingly, by far the greater part of the cellar is of more recent construction. Enzo Brezza focuses on the classic Nebbiolo wines from the historic sites of the area, including top sites such as 'Bricco Sarmassa', 'Cannubi' and 'Sarmassa'. In addition, other Piedmont classics are offered - such as Dolcetto, Barbera, Langhe Chardonnay, Moscato di Asti and the increasingly rare Langhe Freisa. The Brezza winery testifies to a solid and naturally grown structure and is still run as a family business. The passionately run house is therefore guaranteed not one of the newer designer wineries from the retort, but a place full of charm and history, which literally jumps on the visitor. The saying 'growing in style' have the Brezza in any case leased for themselves.

The family winery Brezza is one of the most symphatic in all of Barolo (not to be confused with a wine brand of the same name from Umbria). The family business testifies to a solid and grown structure, Brezza is thus guaranteed not one of the new designer wineries from the retort. The wines are consistently vinified traditionally. There are no technological gimmicks in the cellar, nothing is embellished or modified. And it is this fidelity to the true roots of Barolo that makes the greatness of Brezza's products. The basic Nebbiolo and Dolcetto wines are not only delicious, but also affordable compared to their quality. The fact that the Baroli of the house are not among the cheapest is justified by the extremely fine workmanship, which can easily compete with the greats of the scene. Especially the products from the single vineyards in Cannubi, Sarmassa & Castellero make it clear that the Brezza Crus have a clear art and collector's value. - Gerardo [TS06/22]

"On several weddings dances the family Brezza. Not only does it call one of Barolo's historic wineries its own, it also owns a hotel and restaurant in the middle of town. From 18 hectares of vineyards around Barolo come different Baroli: Bricco Sarmassa, Castellero and Sarmassa. In addition, Barbera, Dolcetto and Langhe Freisa are pressed. Enzo Brezza is the estate's oenologist, and together with Marco Brezza he is responsible for the range of wines. 'Our strength is in single-vineyard Barolo,' explains Enzo, who has no regrets about working in the family business: 'It's a challenge to do everything better than the previous generations." - The new Barolisti (VINUM)

"He is still young, his winery already old. However, to speak of a mesalliance would be fundamentally wrong, because the dynamic Enzo Brezza continues to move the 130-year-old company forward. He follows traditional paths, leaving his wines on the skins for a long time and not shying away from using medium-sized barrels. Nevertheless, he is by no means averse to new things, as evidenced by trips to Australia or the introduction of glass closures. The estate includes an osteria and a family-run hotel, which have become popular destinations for 'nebbioliologists." - Gambero Rosso
