La fermentazione si svolge, con macerazione di 8-10 giorni, dopodiché il vino affina in botte grande per più di 12 mesi.È contraddistinto da un colore rosso granato scuro. Al naso presenta un intrigante contrasto tra sentori predominanti di lampone e di viola che con l'invecchiamento lasciano spazio ad aromi secondari che richiamano quelli del Barolo. Al gusto è mediamente strutturato ed elegante, piacevolmente armonico.Ideale con i formaggi a pasta molle ed erborinati, trova l'accostamento perfetto con primi piatti al ragù di carne, le carni rosse alla brace e gli arrosti.

MASSOLINO
Family
The first wine cellar was built by Giuseppe, son of the founder Giovanni, who, together with his sister Angela, extended his estate into the best soils and, in 1934, was one of the founders of the Consortium for the Defence of Barolo and Barbaresco. At that time, Giuseppe had six children. Three of them, Giovanni, Camilla and Renato, followed in their father's footsteps, expanding the estate with the purchase of cru vineyards which are authentic jewels: Margheria, Parafada and Vigna Rionda.

In the 1990's Franco and Roberto, both oenologists, joined the family estate; they purchased another of the fundamental vineyards of the estate, in the cru of Parussi in Castiglione Falletto, and completed the building of the new cellar in Serralunga d'Alba. Their work condenses the experience of an entire family and the ambition of a new generation, determined to make an important contribution to the innovation of oenological and agronomical techniques and to the image of the estate in Italy and abroad.

TASTING CHARACTERISTICS

Appearance: garnet red with variable intensity depending on the vintage.
Bouquet: delicate and pleasant, the predominant notes are of raspberry and violet, with the imposition of secondary perfumes very similar to those of Barolo as it ages.
Flavour: a complete and temptingly harmonious wine the elegance of which makes up for its lesser structure compared with that of Barolo.
It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20ºC.

A wine for drinking with all courses of a meal, it offers its best expression when served with rich and tasty dishes, from fresh pasta with rich meat of vegetables sauces, to grilled or roast red meat dishes. It is also excellent with soft and delicate blue cheeses.

Vinification and ageing: a classic wine, with average fermentation and maceration lasting 8-10 days, very similar to that used for Barolo. It ages in traditional barrels for over a year and, during its whole production cycle, the utmost attention is paid to all the details which convey smoothness and elegance to a young Nebbiolo.

4/5

It had a very shutdown colour. Smells good of roses. I liked the Massolino Nebbiolo, but it tasted a bit rough.
Great with vegetables and grilled meat.
The best friend from Langhe.
