Virna di Borgogno Barolo Sarmassa 2013
2013: 96 JS
This wine is made from grapes grown on two famous vineyards, both in the commune of Barolo: Sarmassa and Preda. Combining grapes from these two vineyards produces a well-balanced, harmonious wine packed with the fresher, more elegant aromas of Sarmassa and the power of the body and structure provided by Preda .
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.
