Bright garnet red, this Barolo has an intense and complex nose with aromas of black cherries, rose petal and violet coupled with savoury notes of mushroom, tar and forest floor. Probably the most potent of all the Massolino wines, it perfectly showcases the essential characteristics of Barolo, with grand structure, robust tannins and vibrant acidity endowing it with great potential for further ageing.
Barolo Riserva DOCG Vigna Rionda
This 23 hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. Since 1994 the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. Winemaker Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition, something that sets him apart from most of the younger producers in Barolo today. This is in part dictated by the nature of the vineyards that the Massolino family owns in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba – the source of some of the greatest, most structured, robust and long-lived Barolo wines.
Grapes for this wine were grown in the 2.3 hectare ‘Vigna Rionda’ vineyard, which is one of 35 recognised Serralunga crus (MGA). Situated mid-slope at 330 metres above sea level, the vineyard is at an ideal altitude for Nebbiolo and is protected from northern winds by the Castelletto hills. The marl-limestone mix of soils, together with the microclimate, enables the production of wines with an optimum balance of structure, aroma and finesse. The vines are Guyot trained and are planted at a density of 5,000 to 6,000 vines per hectare. The average yield is 4.5 tonnes per hectare and the vines are 30-50 years old.
‘Vigna Rionda’ is a classic style of Barolo, made using traditional vinification techniques. Fermentation and maceration lasted 25-30 days at temperatures between 31 and 33°C. The wine was aged for three and a half years in traditional, large Slavonian oak barrels. The wine was then bottled and aged in the Massolino cellars for a further two years prior to release.
