Beguiling scents of fragrant berry, rose petal, baking spice, new leather and aromatic herbs swirl around in the glass. The vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, doling out morello cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and star anise, while polished tannins and bright acidity provide impeccable balance. It’s just gorgeous and while it’s already accessible, it also shows midterm aging potential. *Editors' Choice* (KO)
Very beautiful aromas of orange peel, plums and berries follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a long finish. Better in 2019.
The 2013 Barolo is elegant and streamlined. This vintage is a bit tighter, more compact and better suited to medium or long-term cellar aging. You feel that positive nervous energy locked with the fruit on display here. Pressed cherry and spice are followed by balsam herb and fragrant rose hip. The wine shows cooling and smooth intensity. Some 62,000 bottles were produced. Franco and Roberto Massolino completed construction on their new high-tech winery in 2015. It enjoys a fantastic and unique location under the panoramic square in Serralunga d'Alba. This is another fantastic set of new releases from this first-rate Barolo estate. (ML)
Readers will get a good sense of what the vintage offers at Massolino with the 2013 Barolo. Deep, layered and ample on the palate, the 2013 exudes depth and aromatic intensity. Dark red cherry, plum, wild flowers, mint and savory herbs are laced into the super expressive finish. Readers should not miss this drop-dead gorgeous beauty. This is the first bottling of the base Barolo. And it is terrific. (AG)
