About this wine

The grapes to produce the Dolcetto d’Alba DOC Massolino were hand harvested and selected in the vineyards. They were then crushed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks at temperature of 27-29°C for a period of seven to nine days. Malolactic fermentation followed naturally in the same tanks. The wine is then aged for a short period of time in stainless-steel and cement tanks. After four months in the bottle, the wine is released. This wine comes from a 3.2 hectares vineyard in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba. The altitude here is 330 meters above sea level and the soil has mixed consistency tending toward limestone. Vines are trained following the Guyot system, planted at a density of 5000 vines per hectare for the younger vines and 6.000 for the older plantings. The average age of the vines is 20 – 25 years and the first year of production was 1896. 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.
