Massolino Langhe Nebbiolo 2015

$48.00

One of my favourite producers from the region. This is the Barolo you have when you don’t have the money to buy Barolo.

Built on perfume and finesse, it’s a suave, fragrant, cherry and wild strawberry noted Nebbiolo with the savoury, chalky minerality that’s so typical of Massolino and Serralunga in general. If the finesse, complexity and deliciousness of this wine are anything to go by, and they usually are, bring on the 2015 big guns. Drink now (it’s surprisingly quite approachable) to 2023

Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate – 89 points – “Aged in large oak casks for 12 months, the 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo offers balance and varietal purity. There is an emphasis on ripeness here, and you do feel some of the summer heat that washed over the Langhe in the 2015 vintage. The fruit is bright and cheerful with cherry confit and wild strawberry. Those lingering aromas are fragrant and bright.”

More Information

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.

Nebbiolo from vineyards situated in Serralunga d’Alba.
Altitude: 340 m above sea level.
This wine is simply a ‘declassified’ Barolo. It comes from Massolino’s younger Barolo vines in Serralunga. When these vines are old enough they will help produce the Barolo proper. As was the case in 2014, some fruit from the older Barolo vines also make it into this cuvĂ©e. Like all Massolino Nebbiolo, it is aged in large Slavonian oak casks, although the Langhe only spends 12-18 months in wood, compared with the Barolo’s 24 months. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the style is like a scaled down Massolino Barolo, one with more immediate fragrance and finesse and less tannin. It is crafted for early enjoyment.
