2017 Massolino Barolo
2017 Massolino Barolo Garnet red color with variable intensity depending on the vintage. The grapes come from different sub-zones in Serralunga and this gives them a broad and variable spectrum of perfumes, ranging from tempting spicy notes to those of a sweeter, floral, and fruity nature. A variety of sensations, with a full-bodied, classic and well-structured wine which ages well and perfectly represents the important character of their land. Winemaker
Camphor, wild berry, new leather and blue flower aromas emerge on the nose of this savory wine. Full-bodied and delicious, the structured palate delivers succulent Marasca cherry, baking spice and a hint of menthol alongside firm, refined tannins. This is an incredible performance for what is the firm’s entry level Barolo. 95pts WE
Brothers Roberto and Franco Massolino make some of the greatest Barolo I have ever tasted. I love going to Enzo’s, Arthur Ave in the Bronx, the foods exquisite and they have some great cellared Massolino Barolo’s that have blown my mind over the years. Huge scores and top producer, the 2017 Massolino Barolo has received excellent press by no less than 4 top critics. Their wines come from Serralunga, one of the sweet spots of Barolo that makes some of the finest wines. Massolino is a treasure. They’re one of the few wineries that can say they have almost thirty wines on Wine Spectator’s annual ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’ list, including last year’s vintage, the 2016 which was # 7 on the Top 100. As you could imagine, that made getting an allocation this year infinitely more difficult. Everybody wants this wine and our price is strong!!
