Barolo Sarmassa DOCG

Region: Piemonte

Sub-region: Barolo


From vineyards planted in 1940 and 2000. Situated at 300 m.asl, with a southerly exposure. Soil is composed of sand (26,3%), silt (43,2%), clay (30,5%).The soil of this vineyard, like all those of Barolo, is made up of San’Agata Fossil Marl (TOV). The wines are of better quality in the drier years because of the higher percentage of clay and silt, which ensure greater water retention and less stress on the vine. Vines are guyot-trained, with 3,700 planted per ha. Rootstocks K5BB and 420A.


It is similar to that of the other vineyards Cannubi and Castellero but with a difference in the length of the maceration period; the maceration period is generally longer with the grapes from Sarmassa, since they possess softer tannins.
