2019 Massolino Langhe Nebbiolo
New Massolino has arrived in store!
First founded by Giovanni Massolino in 1896, the philosophy was to produce wines with passion and to care deeply for the health of the vineyards. This philosophy is as true today as it was then. The family has carefully managed to modernise with the times while respecting the traditions of their ancestors and as a result has undoubtedly become one of the most important producers in Piedmont.
The blend is roughly one-third from each terroir, and there’s little doubt the sum of these three sites has bought even more brightness and early drinking appeal to what was already an outstanding Langhe Nebbiolo. Like all Massolino Nebbiolo, it was aged in large Slavonian oak casks (although the Langhe only spends 15 months in wood, as compared to 24-plus months for the Barolo wines).
“Wonderfully vibrant and perfumed with great acidity and energy with aromas and flavours that suggest rose, cranberry, blackberry and all kinds of spice. Super drinking already.”- Bibendum Imports
