Description

Massolino Barolo 2019 is a concentrated red wine with a complex bouquet of floral, red fruit and spicy aromas over a balsamic and mineral background. On the palate it is voluminous, velvety and round. A medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins, noticeable acidity and a long, balsamic finish.

"While at the village level in 2018 we seem to find more dilute wines, Massolino should be considered an exception because they produced just a village Barolo, a blend of all their MGAs, including Vigna Rionda. The wine shines for its bright ruby colour, meaty and tarry with a incredible depth of rhubarb and minerality. Open-knit with its wild strawberry and cherry fruits, it flows on the velvety palate, lean yet refined, with polished tannins and brilliant integrated acidity. The finish is all cherry kernel and liquorice root. With this 2018 the estate confirms its consistency."

In 2018 the estate didn't make its cru-specific bottlings so the best grapes are in this straight Barolo. And it shows. It opens with heady scents of eucalyptus, pine forest, hay, new leather and lilac. Extremely elegant, the savory, vibrant palate exhibits red cherry, juniper berry and star anise set against taut, refined tannins and bright acidity.

Pomegranate, watermelon, rose petal and light spices. Rich ripeness of bold red and black fruits tied in with layers of new oak shine through.

17/20 Points- Jancis Robinson.com***
With the owners having decided against producing any of their single-vineyard wines, this Barolo benefits from being a blend of top-class vineyards such as Vignarionda, Margheria, Parafada and Parussi in Castiglione Falletto.
Lustrous mid ruby. Displays the intense fragrance so typical of the 2018 vintage and with plenty of concentration underneath. Supple fruit layered with crunchy tannins and ripe, appetising acidity. Lots of stuffing and grip. (WS)
