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

Garnet red colour with slight orange hue.  The grapes come from different vineyards 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.  This is a full-bodied, classic and well structured wine that ages well and develops further aromatic complexity and suppleness on the palate.   It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C.  Wines like this achieve their best expression when served with red meats like game or dishes containing truffle.  Also excellent with fresh pasta and meat sauce, mushroom risotto or medium-mature cow’s milk and goat’s milk cheeses.

Method

Barolo DOCG Classico is the a classic expression of the Barolo terroir and was first produced at Massolino in 1947.  Made from grapes grown in different vineyards.  The Nebbiolo grapes grow on a mixed soil that tends towards limestone.  The juice undergoes a long fermentation and maceration in oak fermenters (“tini”) at temperatures around 30°C, then aged in large Slavonian oak casks for up to 30 months before being left to mature in bottles in the cool dark cellar.
