This classic Barolo has been the flagship of the winery for many years and the delicious 2017 vintage fits seamlessly into the ranks of the many excellent Baroli of the Massolino family.
The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine come from various vineyards in Serralunga D'Alba and Castiglione Falletto, which is why the range of aromas of the wines is very broad.
The hand-picking takes place in the second half of October. After the berries have been de-stemmed, fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then matured in large oak barrels and this process takes at least 30 months. The subsequent bottle aging, which is usually one year, takes place in the dark and cool storage rooms provided.
This impressive Barolo has a wide range of scents, consisting of red berries, exotic plums, but also concentrated cherries, dark spices and mineral, stony notes. The density and concentration of the sour cherry fruit is impressive on the palate and is accompanied by long, finely woven tannins. A really fine, powerful Barolo paired with great elegance and balance.
The Barolo goes very well with dark meat, game and egg pasta with meat sauce. It is already very mature to drink and will reach its full potential over the next 8-10 years.
Massolino has helped determine the history of the Barolo from the beginning. Today the winery is one of the most important producers in the Langhe.
The Massolino winery is inextricably linked with the village of Serralunga d'Alba and is one of the most renowned wineries in the Langhe. Beautifully located on the edge of the village square, one overlooks the steep vineyards and the entire Alpine panorama
The winery was founded by Giovanni Massolino in 1896. He was responsible for connecting the village to the electricity grid. His persistence and creativity were the basis for today's traditional and excellent winery.
Today, in the fourth generation, Franco Massolino makes wines with passion and the goal of preserving the unique properties of the cultivated grape varieties and with the conviction that there is a deep and tangible connection between the vines, the hills and gives to the winemaker. The Massolino family has followed this philosophy since 1896 - and does not ignore the necessary innovation as long as tradition is preserved. In short - always loyal to yourself.
