AWE blind tasting - lovely liquory fruit, great captured fruit on the nose, with exotic notes of green seeds middle eastern spicy seeds, nice intensity just a touch of medicinal character and a hint of black cherry fruit, a bit sweet up front then falling off but the palate holds it together just enough to maintain interest, a soft styled wine again with lovely pure if simple dark slight cooked raspberry/dried strawberry tones and a little bit of tension from the medicinal character which gains nice purity on the long finish 88-89

Massolino's cask-aged 2005 Barolo Margheria is a sweet, layered wine that shows superb depth and precision. Deceptively medium in body, the wine offers up plums, spices, licorice, iron, herbs and flowers in a chiseled, beautifully articulated style, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2005 Massolino Barolo Vigna Margheria 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

This twenty hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. From 1994, the style of the wines underwent a subtle transformation. As a result, the young wines, like the outstandingly fleshy Barbera ‘Gisep’, are modern with a lovely intensity of fruit, though not ‘turbo-charged’ as is the current trend. The Baroli, on the other hand, have a classic style and structure but a modern purity of flavour. Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something that sets him apart from most of the younger producers in Barolo today. This is in part dictated by the nature of the vineyards that the Massolino family owns in the commune of Serralunga d`Alba - the source of some of the greatest, most structured, robust and long-lived Barolos.
