2011 Marchesi di Barolo Sarmassa Barolo
I wasn't quite a big fan of Barolo although you can see that I still drank a lot of them, especially the aged ones. This one was obviously too young, but of course I have my reservations whether it'll age gracefully over the years. There was a mismatch of nose and content.
Jumbo bouquet, rich and aggressive. Palate was quite the opposite; light, slightly sourish, and lacked definition. Thus my conclusion was that it won't age for decades like the old Barolos, drink up within a decade!
