Description

For Barolo DOCG Parussi we left the confines of Serralunga, choosing a vineyard in Castiglione Falletto. Thanks to the characteristics of Nebbiolo, a grape variety capable of capturing the differences in microclimate and soil composition and translating them into sensations, the result astonished us. Structured, important, austere.

Appearance:
Deep garnet red.
Bouquet:
Ethereal and enveloping with intense and persistent notes of sweet spices, sandalwood, tobacco and leather.

Flavour:
Great structure. Remarkable tannin which softens with time and make it a perfect wine also for ageing. Its very long finish is typical of Barolos from Castiglione Falletto. It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C.
Parussi is the first Barolo made from grapes grown outside Serralunga d’Alba, in another fantastic area: Castiglione Falletto. The traditional vinification and ageing processes, which are the same as those used for its “Barolo brothers” from Serralunga d’Alba, highlight the well-known capacity of Nebbiolo grapes to deliver Barolos with different fascinating
characteristics reflecting the changes in the microclimate and soil the grapes were grown in. Perfect with the rich, traditional cuisine of the region, stewed meats and medium- long matured cheeses.

Reviews

*** 96/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate***
"Of the four single-vineyard Baroli made by Massolino, the 2016 Barolo Parussi is the only one with fruit from Castiglione Falletto. This wine is elegant and tight, and it shows a superb level of Nebbiolo precision. That sharpness is built upon beautifully in a classic vintage such as 2016, and aromas of wild berry, earth, tobacco, licorice and dusty limestone come into startling focus. Parussi adopts a direct and linear approach with fine and polished tannins. In a portfolio that so closely monitors the taste profile of Serralunga d'Alba, this wine is the delightful outsider."
