SKU 38796


The Sarmassa vineyard is located just below Cerequio, within the commune of Barolo. Planted in 1985, it is one of the oldest vineyards worked by Roberto Voerzio, with a density of slightly less than 2,000 vines per acre. The Nebbiolo grapes are harvested in late September-early October. After crushing, the must is macerated in contact with the skins for 10 days. The wine is aged in Allier barriques (1/3 new) for 26 months, followed by an additional 12 months in bottle.

Wine AdvocateVoerzio's 2006 Barolo Sarmassa di Barolo (magnum) literally explodes on the palate with red fruit, flowers, spices and mint. Still tightly wound, the 2006 is an especially powerful Sarmassa that isn't quite as accessible as it often is at this stage. Still, the wine's bouquet, purity of fruit and persistence all augur for a long life of magnificent drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

Wine SpectatorOffers lovely sweet fruit, sporting cherry, floral and licorice flavors with hints of eucalyptus and tar. Though fleshy, this is backed by firm tannins and bright acidity, picking up mineral accents on the lingering finish. Best from 2013 through 2032.
