Giacomo Brezza & Figli Barolo Bricco Sarmassa 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Furry on the nose with notes of mineral, iron, a little sweet wood, astringent lingonberry fruit, juniper, incense and Slovenian oak. A bit soft on the palate though nicely rich and broad in the mouth, this has nice acid with flavors that are tending towards a woodsy, almost autumnal spice quality. The ripe tannins are supportive and there is a nice follow through on the tight finish with red lingonberry fruit and a hint of menthol. 90pts

This has a big nose with lots of jammy red raspberry fruits, a little citron peel, spicy fruitcake notes and a hint of incense. Rich and almost soft on entry with a mineral edge and finely integrated acids that might be quite powerful if not for the balance here. The tannins are ripe and supple and there is lovely depth of succulent fruit right through the big, fruity boysenberry finish that retains a lovely vein of savoriness. 92pts
