    When last we tasted this, the wine had certainly shut down by comparison to its "Cannubi" counterpart giving the impression it's built for the long haul. Brezza's "Sarmassa" vines are planted primarily in clay which explains why the wine is often more structured than the Cannubi. Ample and expressive aromas of red fruit, licorice and earth belie a concentrated and complex palate that while closed at present, is sure to emerge with proper cellaring. A first class 2013 Barolo.

    You can tell immediately that this wine is special; the nose is pronounced, complete, and full of tar, spice, truffle and smoke. On the palate this wine has a concentration of flavors but don’t think of it as richer it’s just more comprehensive, layers and layers of effortless fruit, spice along with bits of leather, tar and wild berries. The finish is magnificent, wide, long, bringing back all the nose and fruit, with a bit of jauntiness, just to let you know it is more than just complex fruit.
    Drink from 2017 to 2038
