Editorial Reviews for Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Parafada
AWE blind tasting - a fair amount of smoky oak here, still some medicinal character, lacks detail, nicely managed tannins, an easier mouthfeel, a bit of chewy extract, lacks follow through, short, 85-86
This 15 hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. Since 1994 the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something which sets him apart from most of the younger producers in Barolo today. This is in part dictated by the nature of the great 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. Fruit for this wine is grown in the 1.5 ha Parafada vineyard, situated at an altitude of 330 metres above sea level. The soil is composed of marl and limestone. The vines are Guyot trained and are planted at a density of 5,800 vines per hectare. The average age of these vines is 45 years. Fruit was hand picked in the second half of October.
