Marchesi Di Barolo Sarmassa 2000 DOCG

photo/digital image ©2008 by Dave Trieger
Italy • This Sarmassa single vineyard uses 100 % hand picked Nebbiolo grapes to make this Barolo aged in Slavonian oak. Color is garnet red, aroma is sour cherry, violets, licorice and slight vegetal notes. Palate is complex... sour cherry and plum, with concentrated raisin and a long finish.

Tried the Barolo again 2 days later... now it's smooth as silk and lost the sour notes on the cherry. This one's flavors really sneak up behind you and hit you over the head.
