About The Wine
The Langhe Nebbiolo is simply a more approachable blend of fruit that just didn't quite make the cut for the family's standard of Barolo.
You get all the charm of the Nebbiolo grape, you get the beauty of the Piedmonte region, you get the Massolino name, all at a much more hip-pocket-friendly price.
You drink the Langhe while the Barolo matures in the cellar, is the thinking. And drink it, we will!
This is a lovely release of Langhe from the Massolino family. It will improve over the mid-long term, but it doesn't need it to be enjoyed.
The Massolino family's history as winegrowers in Serralunga stretches back more than a century.
Founded in 1896 by Giovanni Massolino, the family's history 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 Piedmonte and the wines are prized in the best cellars and restaurants in the world.
