The estate was founded in 1896 by Giovanni Massolino, near the picturesque medieval village of Serralunga d’Alba in Piedmont, Italy. Surrounding the village is one of the best sub-zones of Barolo and it’s here the estate’s greatest asset, its prized vineyards sit. The estate recently purchased more vineyards which now total around 100 acres.
“The 2018 Barolo is the only Barolo Massolino bottled in this vintage. Aromatically expressive and gracious, the 2018 offers lovely translucence in the mid-weight style of the year. Sweet dried cherry, mint, tobacco, spice, licorice and rose petal all open effortlessly in the glass. Naturally, the 2018 doesn’t have the depth of the single vineyards or the best vintages, but it is an absolutely lovely wine to savor over the next 10-15 years.”

"This red packs loads of floral, strawberry, cherry and white pepper aromas and flavors. Slim and fruity for the most part yet with a solid underlying structure. Austere for now on the finish, but well balanced overall. Best from 2025 through 2043."
