Marchesi di Barolo Sarmassa Barolo 2015
Sarmassa is located on a south-eastern facing slope. Despite the fact that the surrounding area originated in the Tortonian era, from a geological perspective, significant soil erosion due to the steep slope of the hill, caused the soil to take on the typical characteristics of the Helvetian period. Therefore, it is composed mainly of clay and limestone and has a very substantial percentage of stones. The significant quantity of stones, combined with clay, limits the growth of the Nebbiolo grape and prepares the vines to react quickly to climatic variations, enabling clusters to ripen perfectly.
Barolo Sarmassa reaches maturity after 8 years from harvest and its peak condition is between 8 and 30 years of age, making this wine structured, colorful, tannic and long-lasting. 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.
