Giacomo Brezza & Figli Barolo Sarmassa 1989

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This possessed superb aromatics with very clear notes of astringent red fruits, limestone, tobacco, and nuanced notes of spice, wood and flowers it was simply a classic expression of Barolo with just a hint of oak. In the mouth this was sweet and packed with ripe, juicy raspberry fruit supported by fine tannins that lend this a fleshy, rich feel. Altogether likable in a rather enthusiastic style the palate doesn’t quite deliver on the promise of the nose, but this is still fun to drink and very satisfying 2009-2024 90pts

Nose has sweet shop candied fruit with hazelnut. Lot's of cherry too. The palate is full with dark cherry, clove and spice. Nice finish of red fruit. A really great wine, just wish I could find some for sale.
