Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda 1996

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Gorgeous on the nose,just filed with  tar, earth, animal, wild herbs, spiced cherry and plum aromas with a hint of  root beer.  Silky and perhap a touch faded from being opened for 24 hours and a little warm to boot,  but this shows exceptional power, with cool firm fruit that is  slightly more rustic than what get made today. The long finish shows mineral and superb fine grained tannins in an elegant but powerful style. This should continue to improve for quite some time, though the fruit seems to have already taken a back seat. 92pts

The wine, its land, a famiy A century of work, four generations and an immense love of their land. The Massolino family have always made their wine here, in Serralunga d'Alba, at their home.
