Wine AdvocateBenefitting from southeast exposures, the 2010 Barolo Sarmassa is a deeply layered and concentrated wine with immediate aromas of spice, mahogany, ripe cherry, pressed blackberry and shaved truffle. Barolo Sarmassa offers a very attractive smoothness that is especially evident on the finish. The wine fades slowly leaving a pretty, vanilla aftertaste. Drink: 2016-2028.
Wine SpectatorPure and fruity, evoking black cherry and plum flavors. The dense, dusty tannins are evident, but overall this shows more fruit than wild herb, licorice or tobacco notes. Excellent length. Best from 2016 through 2025. 1,250 cases made.
