Massolino Nebbiolo Barolo 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Appearance: Garnet red colour with variable intensity depending on the vintage. Bouquet: The grapes come from different subzones in Serralunga and this gives them a broad and variable spectrum of perfumes, ranging from tempting spicy notes to those of a sweeter, floral and fruity nature. Flavour: A variety of sensations, with a full-bodied, classic and well structured wine which ages well and perfectly represents the important character of our land.

Tight and small on the nose with  wet dark earth, rose hips, fine earth, camphor, and wild cherry Aromas. This is soft and easy on entry with a nice freshness to the earthy wild cherry fruit. This is quite simple, hitting that earthy wild cherry note right through the moderately long finish and while this may not be the most complex Barolo around it is an excellent entry point for people. This shows the soft tannins that were possible in 2009. 88pts

A mix of cherry, cedar and tobacco flavors highlights this juicy, vibrant and almost racy red, with a layer of tannins sitting underneath the flavors. The elements come together on the long, savory aftertaste. Best from 2017 through 2032.

There’s an earthy porcini savor to this Barolo, with muscular tannins adding heft. The wine follows a simple red-fruited line, balanced, ripe and smooth, needing age to reveal its complexity.
