Massolino Nebbiolo Langhe DOC

2017

In a Nutshell

This wine is the perfect introduction to Nebbiolo, the noble grape of Barolo.

Tasting Notes

In the glass, this Nebbiolo is ruby in colour with a hint of purple. Notes of violet, raspberry and redcurrant are supported by hints of cherry liqueur and subtle spices. On the palate, this wine shows gentle and elegant tannins, well balanced by bright acidity.

Production Notes

After 8-10 days of temperature-controlled fermentation (31-34ºC) in stainless-steel tanks, the wine was aged in traditional 'botti' or large casks for over a year. Massolino's aim was to make an approachable style of Nebbiolo which can be enjoyed without overwhelming the drinker.

Press Quotes & Awards

The bouquet is very fresh and floral, rose petals and violets. It's dry and savoury on the tongue, very approachable, and the tannins are mild. There is deeply-buried fruit sweetness here. The finish is dry but not too assertive. An outstanding example of the style. 93 points.
