Winemaker's Notes

The Massolino Barbera d'Alba displays a deep purple, almost impenetrable red color and elegant and sweet aromas with the fruit and intensity notes characteristic of Barbera. On the palate, vinous, fresh and well balanced. An easy to drink wine which is tasty and rich without being excessively binding.

Pairs perfect with Langhe cuisine and very tasty dishes in general. Excellent with pasta, rich and soup, braised or grilled red meats and medium-mature cheeses. It is also perfect for aperitifs, with appetisers and sliced meats.

Critical Acclaim

"Cherry and black currant notes meld with the juicy texture in this supple Barbera. Pure and elegant, with fine harmony and a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice."
90 Points

"Bright dark red with ruby highlights. Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas of black cherry, violet and red licorice. Sappy, vibrant black cherry and floral flavors boast impressive silkiness of texture for 2012 barbera. Finishes juicy and long, with a palate-staining whiplash of fruit."
90 Points

"Massolino's 2012 Barbera d'Alba is fabulous. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon jump from the glass. Floral, expressive and exuberant, yet also totally classic in its sense of proportion, the 2012 is simply fabulous."
90 Points
