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.

One of the most distinctive wines in this range, the 2018 Dolcetto d'Alba is a powerful wine that really shows the grip and intensity of Serralunga in its structural feel. Smoke, iron, incense, dark spice, menthol and licorice add character to a rich, flavorful Dolcetto that will shine at the dinner table. The Dolcetto is often a standout at Massolino, as it is again in 2018.

90 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Mar 2020)

The primary fruit here, in the bright-cherry and raspberry-cheesecake zone, is appealing and well delivered. Medium-bodied with finely tuned acidity and medium-firm tannins. Drink now.

90 points, James Suckling (Nov 2019)
