Notes from the producer:
"Sarmassa is our historic vineyard in the heart of the estate, a very special Cru because of its many expositions and soil types. Not all the grapes from this cru end up in this wine, but only from those plots that give the very best result year after year.
Warmth, structure, finesse, this is La Sarmassa, how traditionally the Barolos from Barolo always have been. Sarmassa Vigna Merenda is a Barolo resulting from long macerations, delicate extractions, and aged in large barrels for at least 18 months followed by a long period in the bottle."
