Vigna Rionda - Massolino on Snooth

  • I got so excited about dolcetto this year, see my report on The Return of Dolcetto, that I almost forgot about Barbera!  I love Barbera. It’s a rich wine, though too often spoofed up with too much oak, but when you find an example that focuses on the fruit you get a wine that is bursting with mouth cleansing acids, rich with plummy fruit, and li...

  • Vigna Rionda Massolino Barbera d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fruit from the lowest part of Rionda and west facing part of Margheria, called le tourne. Only produced in top vintagesCreamy on the nose with a wood smoke top note over fine candied medicinal notes, the oak is fairly obvious. Big, ripe, polished, powerful, and deep on the palate with big fruit and creamy oak on the backend leading to long blac... Read More

    No written review

    Wine review by jamlani


  • I have a good memory and as with most people it is particularly astute when recorded painful moments in one’s life. Take for example 1994, when I finally broke into my stash of benchmark 1982 Barolo. We’re talking Marcarini, and Cascina Francia, Monprivato and Vietti. There were six bottles in all, and I carefully decanted them before cooking di... Read More

  • Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda 2001

    Snoothrank:

    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 bod... Read More

  • Vigna Rionda Massolino Barbera d'Alba 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Only produced in special vintage, ie no 2012 Smells of wood, smoky and a little mushroomy with some Irish spring soap, and hints of slate, blue fruit, and sweet wood. Round, lush, packed with blue fruit on entry this is awfully sexy in the mouth in a powerful soft and sleek style Theres a little wood tannin drying out the finish a bit but this ... Read More

  • I wrote yesterday about the 2009 vintage in Barolo and today I begin reporting on the wines tasted. with over 30 winery visits o the region last month there's a lot of wine to report on. I've included my notes below, broken down by visit in roughly chronological order. As you can see not everyone was able to present the 2009 Barolo for each of t... Read More

    From the article Barolo 2009


  • Massolino Barolo Classico Riserva 1978

    Snoothrank:

    Leafy and evolved on the nose but with fine mineral and red fruit notes. This remains powerful if somewhat rustic in the mouth with red cherry fruit and fine mineral cut. This is quite remarkable with distinctly evolved flavors  and yet a lovely youthful texture and a ong, fine  finish. Could stand some more fruit but it had been opened  for 24 ... Read More

  • Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda 1989

    Snoothrank:

    Classic Rionda nose of iron, seeds, dried rose petals, spice and small red fruits shows lovely freshness and detail. This is another silky wine though its  a bit tired and lacks some focus on the palate, again from having been opened the day earlier,  though it is chewy and powerfully with late arriving acidity and truffle notes layered over fad...

  • Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda 1996

    Snoothrank:

    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 sh... Read More
