Winemaker's Notes

The Massolino displays deep garnet red color with ethereal aromas, featuring spicy, tobacco and brushwood notes; there are also important mineral notes. Classic and nicely harmonious wine, tannic when young and with considerable ageing potential, making it an unmistakable "Nebbiolo of Serralunga".

Critical Acclaim

"The 2009 Barolo Margheria, however, moves us over to the Serralunga d’Alba township where power and structure are the name of the game. This wine shows big bones with firmly rooted tannins and a bold, fleshy quality of fruit. Black currant, chopped mint and licorice are woven tightly within the fabric of the wine."
93 Points

"Beautiful cherry, strawberry, tobacco and leather flavors are displayed on the rich texture and firm structure of this sinewy red. The tannins are dusty, but this manages to find equilibrium on the long, savory finish."
92 Points

"The 2009 Barolo Margheria is racy, delineated and energetic. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint and licorice jump from the glass. There is an attractive juiciness in the Margheria. I imagine the 2009 will drink well relatively early, but also develop nicely in bottle. Rose petals, dried herbs, violets and tar are all layered into the finish."
92 Points

"Bright medium red. Aromatic nose combines redcurrant, raspberry, cherry, dried herbs, spices and rose petal. Silky, floral and vibrant, with a distinctly delicate character to its juicy red fruit, tobacco and floral flavors. A lovely example from lighter sandy soil. Finishes juicy and long, with a slight youthful dryness that calls for at least a couple years of additional bottle aging.

Range: 91+ Points"
91 Points

"From a cru in Serralunga d’Alba, this is youthfully tough, all hard edges at the moment. The aroma is closed off by reduction and the acidity is as potent as the tannins. Yet the fruit packed into the middle of the wine bodes well for long aging."
91 Points

"Attractive pureness of fruit here with hints of cut wood and rose petals on the nose and palate. Medium to full body and fine tannins"

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
