Winemaker Notes: Deep garnet red. Intense aroma with clean scents of wild rose, vanilla, licorice and spices. Feather the resin of pine and tobacco.

With its big structure, this wine is particularly adapted to main courses of red meats, braised dishes, and game in general. An ideal accompaniment for cheeses.
Wine Enthusiast - "Red berry and rose aromas mix with scents of forest floor and balsamic whiffs of eucalyptus on this fragrant red. Full bodied and linear, the vibrant palate shows good tension, offering ripe Marasca cherry, pomegranate, licorice and tobacco framed in firm, fine-grained tannins. It will develop even more complexity with aging. Drink 2023–2035. Cellar Selection. "
James Suckling - "A very plush and attractive Barolo that has an abundance of orange-zest aromas, as well as ripe red cherries and red plums that appear on both the nose and palate. The concentration of fruit flavor is impressive, the tannins sweep long and rich and the depth is undeniable. Drink or hold. "
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "From a beautiful growing site in the Barolo township that consistently delivers structure and depth, the 2015 Barolo Sarmassa offers a slightly austere and firm personality that puts the wine in a good position in terms of its future bottle aging potential. This Barolo reveals thick, etched lines with dark fruit, plum, spice and tangy licorice. The wine appears direct, fruit-forward and suitably propped up by its thick inner fiber. "
