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.

Massolino makes about 60,000 bottles of this wine every year and it sells very well. The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo should offer that same value. This is an elegant, refined take on Nebbiolo, with bright and tonic fruit that just makes it a fun wine. The grapes used are from a selection of sites located in Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba. Starting with the 2018 vintage next year, the blend will also see fruit from a vineyard in Alba with white soils. There's an easy structure to the Langhe Nebbiolo, a freshness and very bright appearance that area easy to love. For this one, see if you can get your hands on some Bra sausage.

91 points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate (Issue # 243 - Jun 2019)
