Virna Barolo Preda Sarmassa 2008
Still rather fresh nose, with hints of red berries steeped in delicate vanilla.
Very deep ruby-red colour.
Dry, full taste, packed with body and structure combined with polyphenolic compounds that cater for lengthy ageing.
This wine is made from grapes grown on two famous vineyards, both in the commune of Barolo: Sarmassa and Preda. Combining grapes from these two vineyards produces a well-balanced, harmonious wine packed with the fresher, more elegant aromas of Sarmassa and the power of the body and structure provided by Preda .
Red meat, meat braised in the same wine and mature cheese.
