RED WINE BAROLO MASSOLINO 2018 DESCRIPTION

The Barolo by Massolino is one of the most beautiful expression of the territory of Serralunga d'Alba; an expression expertly made by one of the wineries with more history, awards and experience of the Langhe. A history inextricably linked to the territory of Serralunga d'Alba, since 1896 when Giovanni decided to found his wine business; resourceful, tenacious, stubborn and creative, in a few years John manages to fulfill his dream, filling the story of his family's pride and heritage which over the years has done nothing but grow, becoming one of the most recognized and Langhe in Italy in the rest of world. Barolo is made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on the beautiful vineyards of the territory of Serralunga d'Alba; rolling hills, with altitudes ranging between 320 and 360 meters above sea level, on soils rich in limestone, exposed to the sun of the South, from vineyards with ages ranging between 10 and 55 years. The Barolo by Massolino is one of the finest expressions of the territory of Serralunga d'Alba, subareas that give a wide range of scents ranging from fruity to floral ones, joining a really intense spiciness. Its garnet red indicates that we are facing a great Barolo; a Barolo that is not afraid of aging, and that is with all his personality the true character of these lands.
