The 2017 Barolo is a gorgeous, harmonious wine.
About The Wine
The Massolino Barolo is a blend of cru vineyards across Serralunga that makes a snapshot of the vintage told through the lens of Nebbiolo.
It's a very important wine to the family, heralding the quality of their elite single vineyard Baroli and it is considered by many as something of touchstone of quality for the region.
It's a classically styled wine, all red fruits and florals with well settled acidity, and seems to be become more delicate with each release.
It also carries with it the Massolino signature clarity and definition, making it a wine that looks its best with a little time to sleep in the bottle.
The Massolino family's history as winegrowers in Serralunga stretches back more than a century.
Founded in 1896 by Giovanni Massolino, the family's heritage is richly intertwined with that of the whole region. They now farm 23 hectares across prime real estate in the Serralunga sub-region, with premium holdings on the famed slopes of Margheria, Parafada and the legendary vineyard Vigna Rionda.
These are wines that, while classic, have continued to evolve over each generation in pursuit of the purest expression of the beloved Nebbiolo grape.
One of the great wine families of Piemonte, the wines are prized in the best cellars and restaurants in the world.
Look out for wonderfully complex Moscatos alongside their traditional red releases.
