These two wines from the nobility of the Marchesi di Barolo exemplify what Nebbiolo should be. Don't miss out on this offer, we only have 30 sets available.
Valentina Abbona describes the soil of the Sarmassa cru as 'strong'. This historic vineyard sits on a steep, heavily eroded slope leaving just clay and stone, which curbs vigor. Aged in a combination of French oak barrique and large Slavonian oak cask, it offers rose tea, black raspberry and grilled herb notes. Despite youthful austerity, the tannins are refined and supported by plenty of flesh, along with an appetizing minerality and juiciness.

The 2016 Barbaresco is garnet red with ruby hues. The aroma is intense, persistent with clean aromas of fruits, dog roses and spices. Full, but at the same time, harmonious and balanced, with soft tannins, elegant and austere flavor with a good body and lingering hints of the olfactory sensations.
This kind of wine is perfect to pair with pasta based dished, especially dressed with meat sauce, also good with ravioli pasta, red meats, roasts, stews, and cheeses of medium seasoning.
