Massolino Vigna Parafada Barolo 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big and intense on the nose with  lots of spice, licorice, strawberry jam, bit of prune, touch of cocoa and something gently floral. This is dense and a touch raw in the mouth with lovely freshness to the fruit, Again one finds nice clarity but the Margheria has this beaten on  texture today. There’s big depth of to the wild cherry and stone flavors that lead to a clean finish that shows quite a bit tannic weight and minty and camphor aromatics. This show age quite well. 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. Today Giuseppe Massolino, who was one of the founders of the Consorzio Barolo e Barbaresco, oversees his sons Giovanni and Renato, who split responsibilities for the vineyards and the cellar management, while Giovanni's son, Franco, is the winemaker. Over the years, the name Massolino has become synonymous with robust, concentrated and well structured Barolo. Read less
