A treasure of the Barolo style, the Vigna Rionda Riserva is spectacular. At elevations toward 400 metres — and yet sheltered from the worst aspects of exposure by surrounding hills — the cru of Vigna Rionda is revered for its distinctive and yet archetypically Serralunga intensity and structure. Stocks of this definitive Riserva are very low, so don't wait!

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

98+/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2014 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is a stunning wine. Sweet, perfumed and deep, the 2014 is off-the-charts great. Dark red and purplish berry fruit, mint, lavender, spice and hard candy infuse the 2014 with striking layers of nuance. But what really impresses about the 2014 is its depth and huge vertical build. All the elements fall into place in a sumptuous, deep Barolo that screams with character. Beams of tannin punctuate the finish. Massolino's 2014 is one of the greatest Vigna Riondas I have ever tasted." Drink 2024 - 2041

17.5/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller

"Serralunga d’Alba. ‘A small quantity of grapes harvested very late. Practically what was left over after a severe selection of the fruit.’ Lustrous mid ruby. Hints of exotic spice, pet shop and subtle but ripe fruit. Nervy acidity running through supple red fruit. Elegant, long and understated and only after a little while you become aware of its enormous length. (WS)." Drink 2020 - 2030
