" Certified Organic. In ancient times, this area was called Salmassa, a name that probably originates from a source of brackish water welling up in its vicinity. This is one of the smallest Crus in Barolo and Brezza only has one hectare, planted in 1941. The soil of this vineyard is typical to the town of Barolo, made mostly from Santagata fossil marne (clay and silt) The higher percentage of clay and the old vines ensures a larger water retention which allows Sarmassa to thrive in hot years. Grapes are hand harvested and transported in small bins. Fermentation lasts for 7-8 days and maceration continues for another 30 days. Malolactic takes place in cement vat before the wine ages two years in 30 hl Slavonian oak casks. The wine is transferred back to concrete for another 8 months and undergoes several rackings to allow bottling without fining or filtration. The wine ages another year in bottle before and is numbered before release. Approx annual production 600-700 cs. " ~ Winery notes
