Winemaker's Notes: The grapes come from different subzones in Serralunga and this gives them a broad and variable spectrum of perfumes, ranging from tempting spicy notes to those of a sweeter, floral and fruity nature. On the palate, a variety of sensations, with a full-bodied, classic and well-structured wine which ages well and perfectly represents the important character of the land.
93 Points Wine Enthusiast - "This fragrant, juicy red opens with scents of perfumed blue flower, ripe black-skinned berry, leather and dark baking. The chewy palate offers fleshy black cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon, star anise and a hint of mocha alongside well-integrated tannins. Drink 2019–2024. Cellar Selection."
93 Points James Suckling - "Very pretty aromas of terra-cotta, ripe fruit and hints of chilies. Full body, round and silky tannins, bright acidity and an attractive combination of citrus and plum. Drink or hold."
92 Points Wine Spectator - "Saturated with cherry, strawberry, white pepper and mineral flavors, this red is lean yet intense, offering a fine balance between dusty tannins and sweet fruit. best from 2019 through 2035"
90 Points Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Massolino's 2012 Barolo is a super-attractive mid-weight wine. Freshly cut flowers, mint, raspberries and sweet red cherries all lift from the glass in a feminine, gracious Barolo built on pure class and nuance. Fine, silky tannins add to an overall impression of grace and class. There is so much to like here. The main vineyard sites are Briccolina, Collaretto, Broglio and Le Turne, all in Serralunga."
