Mellow red cherries and earthy, lightly leathery nuances make a forward, complex nose, which leads to a palate with simple red strawberries. Acidity is salient. A nicely cut finish. Drink or hold.

Of Marchesi di Barolo's three single-vineyard Barolo expressions, the 2014 Barolo Sarmassa is the wine that gives the most structured fruit and textural richness. The bouquet offers dark fruits with plum and blackberry. The mouthfeel is velvety and nicely layered with fine tannins and bright acidity. This cool vintage expression already shows the immediate qualities to pair it with meat dishes or oven-roasted pasta. The wine ages in both barrique and botte grande.

Product Description:

"Barolo Sarmassa is characterized by its deep garnet red color. Its nose is intense and has distinct traces of wild rose, vanilla, licorice and spices, as well as delicate pine resin and tobacco aromas. The taste is full and elegant, full-bodied with evident tannins. The pleasant spicy and woody properties blend perfectly." -Winery
