Massolino Barolo Classic 2019
The Massolino family decided not to bottle separate crus in 2018 and to use all that fruit to bring a really good Barolo Classico to the market.The result is that this Barolo Classico has become a really beautiful wine that testifies to the will to bottle only great quality under their label.
Antonio Galloni (Vinous): “The 2019 Barolo is a very serious wine. Readers looking for an easygoing, entry-level Barolo will not find that here. Bright and sizzling with tannin, the 2019 is going to need at least a few years to fully come together. Crushed rocks, red/purplish fruit and dried flowers emerge with some coaxing, but this is really a wine for the cellar. It is also the most reticent straight Barolo I tasted for this report.” 92/100
RP: “In the light cream-colored label, the 2019 Barolo is elegant and contained, showing a very focused and linear style that makes a great impression and awakens the senses. There is wild cherry, blue flower and crushes stone backed by balanced freshness and tannins. The wine ages in large Slavonian oak casks for 30 months, and 85,000 bottles were released.” 94/100
