This Barbera is made from grapes grown in Serralunga d’Alba vineyards with excellent exposure. Massolino applies a meticulous selection of the grapes to obtain a complex Langhe Barbera. Intriguing and fresh, it has great body and a long finish.
This wine is deep purple in colour. On the nose, it is elegant with intense red fruit aromas - typical of Barbera. On the palate, it is refreshing and well-balanced with supple tannins and a long, fragrant finish.
This 23 hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. Since 1994 the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. 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 Barolo wines.
