2020 Massolino Barbera d'Alba
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.
Massolino’s two hectares of Guyot-trained vines in a limestone-rich Serralunga vineyard are now complemented by Barbera from Monforte d’Alba. The 2020 was fermented for 10 to 12 days in cement tanks and was raised in the same vessels for a short period before being bottled and released.
“With waves of red plum, white florals and nutmeg/clove spice notes, it’s even more fragrant, pretty and altogether classier than usual. The finish is long and perfumed. A super release and another super value.”-Bibendum Wine Imports
