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.

A bright, fruity young barbera with crushed berries and cherries and hints of orange peel. Medium body, easy tannins and a fresh, tangy finish. Drink now.

Here's a fresh, primary expression of Barbera that highlights dark fruit and sweet summer cherry. The Massolino 2019 Barbera d'Alba is all about that fresh and succulent fruit, although, if you spend a little extra time examining the bouquet, you will uncover nicely integrated aromas of forest floor and button mushroom. It ages in cement for six months. This is a cheerful, exuberant and fruit-driven wine that calls out for a plate of fettuccine with porcini. It's not a particularly complex or complicated wine, but it gains points for its easy and proud accessibility. An ample 45,000 bottles were made.
