Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Flavour: probably the most potent of our products, it perfectly sums up the essential characteristics of Barolo wine; great body, its excellent alcoholic concentration and tannins to guarantee very long periods of ageing. It develops slowly and reaches its maximum and genuinely important expression only after ageing for several years. Food Match: This wine is at its best when served with red meat, game, strong cheeses and rich, very tasty dishes in general. Not a wine which is easy to understand it will reward the trained and demanding palate with sensations which are simply unique. Alcohol 14.5%

Lovely dark fruit greets the nose all minty, and fresh and focused with a nice blend of fruitiness and dried herb character. Bright and fresh and clear on the palate with fresh red fruit and that herbal, almost woodsy note from the nose. This is pretty hard and it seems a bit simple today but it is long, with firm yet integrated tannins that bode well for the future. 87pts

The 2001 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is stunning. It opens with gorgeous aromas of rose petals and sweet ripe cherries that meld seamlessly onto a palate of dark raspberries, cocoa and licorice. It offers super length and elegant tannins in a style that is incredibly delicate and surprisingly approachable today. This will be a beautiful wine to follow over the following years and decades. Anticipated maturity: 2011andndash;2026.

The 2001 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is stunning. It opens with gorgeous aromas of rose petals and sweet ripe cherries that meld seamlessly onto a palate of dark raspberries, cocoa and licorice. It offers super length and elegant tannins in a style that is incredibly delicate and surprisingly approachable today. A recent tasting at the estate of Vigna Riondas going back to 1982 was illuminating. The wines had all aged beautifully. While the classic vintages such as 1982, 1985, 1989 and 1990 were all outstanding, one of the highlights was unquestionably the 1986, from a long forgotten, insiders' vintage. RP

Offers aromas of blackberry and plum, with hints of spices and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long finish. This is big, juicy and tannic. Best after 2010.
