2018 Massolino Barolo

$49.99
2018 Massolino Barolo
One of Barolos Prized estates, Massolino, produces some of our favorite wines that are still relative values for the region. These are classically inspired wines that show a definite sense of place. While the crus are the show-stealers, the regular Barolo is still a mainstay—sourced from vines between 10 and 55 years old from a selection of vineyards in Serralunga d'Alba and Castiglione Falletto. This is vinified in the same traditional manner that the crus are with a 15-day maceration, wild yeast fermentation, and aging in large oak barrels. While this is always more approachable than the crus, it still has the structure for aging over a decade if desired. When compared to the Crus from Massolino, this is half the price and is also consistently a best buy for the category. A lovely Barolo and a great way to experience the nice 2018 vintage, which looks to be a classic and structured vintage playing perfectly into the hands of Massolino and is hands down one of the best vintages ever for this wine.

Decanter 94 points! "While at the village level in 2018 we seem to find more dilute wines, Massolino should be considered an exception because they produced just a village Barolo, a blend of all their MGAs, including Vigna Rionda. The wine shines for its bright ruby colour, meaty and tarry with a incredible depth of rhubarb and minerality. Open-knit with its wild strawberry and cherry fruits, it flows on the velvety palate, lean yet refined, with polished tannins and brilliant integrated acidity. The finish is all cherry kernel and liquorice root. With this 2018 the estate confirms its consistency."

Wine Advocate (Monica Larner) 93 points! "The Massolino 2018 Barolo offers a classic interpretation of Serralunga d'Alba with big structure, ample but contained power and lots of black fruit and licorice. This 85,000-bottle production ages in large oak casks for 24 months, and this process further integrates the wine's pretty texture."
