About this wine

The grapes to produce the Langhe DOC Nebbiolo Massolino were hand harvested. After 8-10 days of temperature-controlled fermentation at 31-34ºC in stainless-steel tanks, the wine was aged in traditional ‘botti’, or large casks, for over a year to convey smoothness and elegance. Massolino’s aim is to make an approachable, easy drinking style of Nebbiolo which can be enjoyed immediately. The grapes for this wine come from several vineyards in Serralunga d’Alba, situated at 340 metres above sea level and covering a total of four hectares. The vines are Guyot trained and are approximately 10-12 years old, planted at a density of 5,500 vines per hectare. Soils are mixed but 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.
