One of the more purely sensual wines in this range, the 1999 Barolo Sarmassa possesses stunning depth, power and richness, all supported by sweet, silky tannins. Freshly cut flowers, sweet spices, dark red fruit, licorice and leather are some of the many nuances that emerge from a kaleidoscopic Barolo endowed with magnificent clarity, precision and pedigree. Expressive, perfumed overtones are woven throughout. What a gorgeous wine this is.
Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029
