Description

WHO?

Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something that sets him apart from most of the younger producers in Barolo today. This is in part dictated by the nature of the vineyards that the Massolino family owns in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba – the source of some of the greatest, most structured, robust and long-lived Nebbiolo wines.

WHERE?

Massolino family owns 23 ha and the grapes for this wine came from several vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba, situated at 340 metres above sea level and covering 2.1 hectares. The vines are Guyot trained and are approximately 10-12 years old, planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare. Soils are mixed but predominantly limestone.

WHY?

‘Declassified’ Barolo, Barolino or if we want to compare it with Brunello’s younger brother Rosso di Montalcino, we could name it Rosso di Barolo. Tipical style here is with more immediate fragrance and finesse and less tannin. It is crafted for early enjoyment. Built on perfume and finesse, it’s a suave, fragrant, cherry and wild strawberry noted Nebbiolo with the savoury, chalky undertow that’s so typical of Massolino and Serralunga in general.
