Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2011 Barolo Sarmassa is a complete wine with a vibrant bouquet that is redolent of dark cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and tobacco. Ethereal notes of chopped herb and cherry cola appear at the back. In the mouth, Barolo Sarmassa shows power, concentration and tight textural richness. It should soften and flesh out with more aging time in the bottle.
