Tasting Note:

Ask any grower what the great historic vineyards of Barolo are and you get a whole number of responses depending on their own bias or, indeed, vineyard holdings. However Brunate, Rocche, Cannubi and Vigna Rionda are four that consistently come up, as equally from growers who don’t have holdings in these vineyards as those that do. Rionda, one of the very greatest vineyards in Barolo, is based in the Serralunga Commune. Massolino, are the single biggest land owner with 2.5ha. This an extraordinary wine, ethereal, expansive, complex, complete. This is powerful but super-refined at the same time, the fine red berry and cherry fruit weaves seamlessly through fine-graind structure. Notes of spice, red fruit, undergrowth and mineral, the flavours evolve and expand in the mouth for what seems like an eternity. The wine spends up to 4 years in large slavonian cask and is only ever released as a Riserva.
