Brezza's 2015 Barolo Sarmassa is dense, powerful and quite alluring. The tannins need time to soften, but a core of dense fruit lies behind all of the structural intensity that is present today, and is only waiting for the right time to emerge fully. Menthol, new leather and spice fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. There is plenty to look forward to. In this range, the Sarmassa shows a good deal of persistence and fine overall balance.
