When you're good, you're good; simple as that. And this family, they're on a qualitative hot streak virtually unmatched! Tasting their recent releases a few months back in Serralunga put the exclamation point on that statement (in spite of the grueling post-tasting circumnavigation of the Barolo region with our docent Franco Massolino). The family took full advantage of every high point in 2015 Barolo so be on the lookout for Massolino single vineyards Parafada (97WE), Parussi (95WA), and Margheria (96WE) expected in December - built for the cellar. Massolino Magic is also at work with Barbera d’Alba, Langhe Chardonnay and Langhe Nebbiolo in small quantities. Massolino – not just Barolo. Bargain buys, these are Massolino wines that pair with any dish, and are drinking beautifully right now.

There is a nice fullness and generosity of fruit to the 2017 Langhe Chardonnay, with yellow fruit and good mineral and acidity. This is from various vineyard sites in Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba, and nearly 45,000 bottles of this wine were made. It's aged in four types of vessels: botte, neutral barrique, stainless steel and cement. Malolactic fermentation does not always occur, and in fact, the folks at Massolino try to avoid that second fermentation. This would be a nice choice for a fish stew or seafood chowder.
