Massolino Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very ripe if rather classic with aromas of over ripe red fruits in alcohol, a bit of a balsamic tone, some waxy lipstick, some white soil tones as well. In the mouth this is rich, clear and fairly broad retaining  great focus to the raspberry, mineral and slightly herb tinged flavors really pop on the palate. The fine grained tannins add gentle support here and while this does taper off a bit on the finish, showing a bit of heat, this remains fairly elegant in light of the vintage. 91pts

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.

Over the years, the name Massolino has become synonymous with robust, concentrated and well structured Barolo. Read less
