Massolino Barolo Parussi 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big fruit on the nose, which shows of aromas of cherries and rose petals along with something sweet and carob like topped with a touch of watermelon rind.  Dusty, and deceptively soft and broad on entry, this shows an early hint of  lime zest on the palate before this turns rather intense with lots of tart red fruit and masses of tannins. There’s  less detail than with  the Serralunga crus but more weight with intense raspberry fruit that trades power for focus. his s a wild card, it might turn into  velvet monster or may just remain the chunky powerhouse it is. 90pts

Established in 1896 by Giovanni Massolino, the winery has been dedicated to the production of great wines from the Langhe area for four generations and currently three generations are involved in the day to day winemaking activities.
