Tasting Note:

A monopole parcel within the top part of the Sarmassa vineyard, next to Cerequio. A real beauty, sensual and floral red and black fruits but with a fervour and depth that puts it one step above the regular Barolo. Wonderfully complex array of fruits, garriguettes strawberries, Victoria plum, damson, fresh cut cflower. So alluring and velvety but with a bright “digest” edge. As seductive as they come. This was fermented for 35 days on the skins, a little less than usual because 2011 was a slightly hotter vintage. Aged in 25hl german and slavonian oak casks for around 30 months before two years aging in bottle.
