Another powerful and impressive Barolo from Massolino. The Parussi Cru vineyard's broad nose of dark fruit, earth and rosewood is beautifully complete and compelling. The ripe tannins and acid may need a little time to integrate, but you can savour this exceptional wine ahead of schedule with a good decant. Still, you'll probably enjoy this experience much more in the knowledge you have some bottles aging as well. Seriously good.

Its Origins

Massolino are among the foremost Barolo producers, with deep history in Serralunga d'Alba. Giovanni Massolino founded the estate in 1896 and was also the first to bring electricity to his village. Son Guiseppe and daughter Angela were likewise ahead of their time, in 1934 extending holdings in what are now regarded as some of Barolo's best crus - Margheria, Parafada and Vigna Rionda. Whilst channelling their tradition, Massolino also utilise the heavier clay soils of Serralunga to bring a satisfying breadth, density and structure to their Barolos - which, balanced against their extreme refinement and expressive clarity - make them almost incomparable for the price.

What The Critics Say

94/100 James Suckling

"This has a beautiful fresh blackberry and mineral character on the nose. Some smoked meat as well. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a persistent finish that lasts for minutes. Better in 2020.”

91/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2012 Barolo Parussi is always a bit of a departure in this lineup, as it is the only vineyard Massolino has outside of Serralunga. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries are some of the signatures that add nuance throughout. Lifted and gracious, the Parussi is a typical Castiglione Falletto Barolo built on mid-weight structure." Drink 2019 - 2030

Jancis Robinson

"Lustrous mid ruby and with orange tinges. Immediately minerally on the nose while a little closed on the fruit. Huge tannins wrapping up juicy raspberry fruit. Beautiful long fruit finish, but dramatically tannic."
