The remainder is aged 12 months in small barrels of 225 liter French oak characterized by a medium-strong roast. The wine completes its aging in bottle for 12 months before being sold. The Barolo Sarmassa reaches maturity after 8 years of the harvest and the plateau of maturity is between 8 and 30 years.
