Editorial Reviews for Massolino Barbera d'Alba
20000 bottles, lots of different plots A little ash on the earthy black fruited nose which shows just a hint of something floral and stemmy. There’s lovely richness and acidity on entry here with a lean, tense palate impression that shows a nice plum and blackish strawberry tone to the fruit and steely edged acids that drive the clean, lifted finish. I love the freshness and refreshing quality here. This is as classic as a pure expression of barbera gets. 87pts
Only produced in special vintage, ie no 2012 Smells of wood, smoky and a little mushroomy with some Irish spring soap, and hints of slate, blue fruit, and sweet wood. Round, lush, packed with blue fruit on entry this is awfully sexy in the mouth in a powerful soft and sleek style There’s a little wood tannin drying out the finish a bit but this does have plenty of concentration of fruit and it shows excellent persistence on the finish. 89pts
External Reviews for Massolino Barbera d'Alba
Deep purplish, almost impenetrable red. Elegant, sweet and tempting, the intense and fruity notes characteristic of Barbera emerge. Vinous, fresh and well balanced. An easy to drink wine which is tasty and rich without being excessively binding.
Founded in 1896 by Giovanni Massolino, this winery has remained dedicated, through four generations, to producing wines of the highest quality. The Massolino wines have always been recognized and distinguished for their strength and harmony.
"The classic barbera is a deep ruby red color. It has fragrances of fresh flowers and berries. On the palate
A very rich nose of crushed berry and licorice follows through to a full-bodied palate, with soft tannins and a thick, almost jammy, finish. Smooth and caressing. Best after 2007.
The 2008 Barbera drsquo;Alba is a fresh, vinous effort bursting with fragrant dark red fruit. The wine possesses excellent length, and a harmonious finish. This juicy Barbera is best enjoyed in its exuberant youth. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2012.
