Deep garnet red. Intense aroma with clean scents of wild rose, vanilla, licorice and spices. Feather the resin of pine and tobacco. Taste is full and elegant, full bodied, with tannins in evidence, with recurring olfactory sensations. Enjoyable are the spicy and woody notes that blend perfectly.
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.

"The 2007 Barolo Sarmassa comes across as a bit more ethereal than the Cannubi tasted alongside it. It is a little less developed in terms of its depth and richness, but the aromatics are more expressive and the tannin is also finer. Sweet red berries, anise and mint are some of the notes that linger on the pointed finish. I especially like the freshness and energy here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."
The Wine Advocate
"Round and rich, offering cherry, eucalyptus and tobacco aromas and flavors. On the elegant side, with a base of solid tannins underneath. Shows fine length, with a tobacco-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2014 through 2027. 600 cases made."
