The Massolino family has been producing wine since 1896 in Serralunga d’Alba.  The estate goes by the name Azienda Agricola Massolino Vigna Rionda.  When great-grandfather Giovanni, founded the estate it was very much a traditional farm of the Langhe region; producing fruit and vegetables, raising livestock and making wine for personal consumption and bulk sales.  Today the estate’s main focus is high quality wine production.  Massolino wines are the result of meticulous attention in the vineyards, an essential approach in the cellar and respect for the land.

The soil composition, exposure, the age of the vines and climate are factors that influence the personality of every wine produced and it is particularly true when it comes to the highly sensitive Nebbiolo grape.  The Massolino vineyards grow in ideal locations.  The wines beautifully express the regional terroir.  In order to highlight the uniqueness of each vineyard and site, the grapes from different vineyards are vinified separately. 

Tasting Notes

Barbera d’Alba is a classic Piedmontese red wine; it is well-rounded, sincere, vinous and perfect for pairing with typical local cuisine.  With this product we wish to propose the typical characteristics of traditional
Barbera: intriguing freshness, good body and a long finish.

Method

Made from Barbera grapes grown on soils of mixed consistency tending towards limestone.  It was first produced in 1896.  The grapes benefit from excellent exposure and low yields and undergo a meticulous selection in the vineyard.  The wine ferments for 10-12 days in stainless steel at around 30°C. This is followed by malolactic fermentation and a short period of  maturing in stainless steel; the wine is usually bottled and released for sale during the spring after the harvest.
