Virna di Borgogno Barolo Sarmassa 2012
2012: 96 JS
Very deep ruby-red; still rather fresh nose, with hints of red berries steeped in delicate vanilla; dry, full taste, packed with body and structure combined with polyphenolic compounds that cater for lengthy ageing. This is a fine, on the whole still “young” wine showing great potential.
