Brezza Barolo 2011
Quite deep core of garnet but very pale on the edge, no evidence of amber of bricky colours.
Extraordinary nose, huge and complex, a bit of an assault really: dark chocolate, cedar, rose petals the full Barolo experience in fact.
Palette echoes the nose with a big acidic frame work with the tannic cross beams supporting the whole. Long, complex excellent.
Very fine and poised Barolo, complex, pure, muscular, sure footed and very much what modern Barolo should be like.
Do you remember when you were told a wine smelt like an old cigar box, or a dark chocolate fondant? Well this one delivers, not in a showy way what with it being Barolo, but in a very confident “ I am great wine” sort of way.
