A beautiful Barolo in an elegant but textural style. This Massolino is powerful with beautiful depth, a fine structure and real finesse. Delivering harmony with charisma in the relatively masculine style of this area, Massolino commands and transports the palate. Will age well, but its balance and generosity will makes it decantable now with some rich red meat. Supreme value!

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 Barolo’s - which, balanced against their extreme refinement and expressive clarity - make them almost incomparable for the price.

What The Critics Say

17/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller

"Just mid ruby, lustrous, with the beginning of orange tinges. Savoury nose at first with a peppery edge and hint of liquorice with ripe fruit lurking underneath. Minerally and with a touch of oak. Super-fresh, elegant and with tannic bite on a racy fruit finish. Really appetising. Lithe! Serralunga d’Alba. Total skin contact of 14 days and aged for two years in large 40- to100-hl oak casks. 5.8 g/l acidity. (WS)" Drink 2018 - 2026
