About this wine

The Barbera d’Alba DOC Massolino fermented for 10-12 days in stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 31-33°C. Malolactic fermentation followed, and the wine was left in stainless steel for a short period of maturation. The wine is then bottled and released in spring after the harvest. Grapes for this wine are sourced from several vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba. The vines are Guyot-trained and are approximately 10 to 45 years old. The plant density ranges from 5,000 to 6,000 vines per hectare depending on the age of the vineyard. The vineyards are planted at 330 metres above sea level and soils are predominantly limestone. This 23 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 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 Barolo wines.
