Massolino Barolo "Parafada" '12

The history of Massolino is rooted in Serralunga d’Alba. The famed village of Barolo, in Piedmont, has been the family home since 1896 when Giovani Massolino started the estate. The fourth generation of Massolinos, Franco and Roberto, continue with care and respect for the tradition of their forefathers.

This special Barolo from Massolino is grown in the 1.13 hectare Parafada vineyard, situated at an altitude of 330 meters above sea level. The chalky, marl soil in this south-facing vineyard produces excellent quality grapes. The vineyard is protected from the wind by a ridge formation which helps the grapes ripen fully even in cooler vintages. The bouquet is intense and complex, with red fruit aromas and floral and spicy notes. The flavors are robust, rich and austere. This should drink exceedingly well for the next two decades.
