Massolino Langhe Nebbiolo 2016

$58.00

One of my favourite producers from the region. This is the Barolo you have when you’re not having a Barolo.

“Langhe Neb in a screwcap. Praise be. Bright, spicy, red cherry, some new leather. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively, bright fruit, almost jubey, but savoury flavours with it. Tannin has a chamois-like feel, red fruit on the finish, and plenty of grip. It’s a good iteration of this wine. Not quite ready now, and while juicy fun it may be, it’ll be much better in a couple of years.” 91 points, Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au

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.
