Barolo Grand Cru List
Cantina Brezza Giacomo & Figli
Barolo Cannubi D.O.C.G.
Medium burnished ruby. The 1989 is a sensational effort that perfectly captures Cannubi and the superb 1989 vintage. It shows a very layered profile in its balsamic nose of spices, menthol and flowers, with great density and concentration in its rich black cherry fruit that explodes onto the palate with great persistence and freshness. The 1989 is at the same time more delicate and structured than the 1990.
Barolo Sarmassa D.O.C.G.
Still beautiful, and holding well. This bottle came from the cantina’s library cellar, which is kept at 10-11C (50-52F). Huge nose of tar, black cherries, licorice, violets and rose petals, all very fresh. The flavor profile is more mature: dried dark fruits, cranberries, dried flowers, truffle, loam, licorice, saddle leather, and mountain herbs. The persistence and balance are precise, focused and long. The finish shows excellent ripe and integrated tannins, with fresh acidity and subtle notes of wood.
