Wine Spectator – Plum, earth, hay, leather, licorice, tar and iron flavors are the hallmarks of this powerful red. Offers a dense matrix of tannins, but the finish is long and finds equilibrium in the end. Best from 2024 through 2043.
Wine Enthusiast – This fragrant red offers delicate, enticing scents of wild berry, blue flower and a whiff of camphor. On the vibrant, focused palate, refined tannins and bright acidity frame juicy red cherry, raspberry and white pepper. It’s elegant—almost ethereal—and already approachable. Drink through now–2024.
James Suckling – Impressive vibrant strawberries. A lighter fruited style with poached cherries and vanilla. Attractive fragrances, too. The palate has a mellow, medium-bodied feel, and the tannins are nicely shaped. Try from 2020.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2014 Barolo is an accessible, mid-weight wine with varietal aromas of wild berry, smoke, forest floor and grilled herb. This wine washes over the palate with silky intensity and fine tannins that already show a very good level of integration. I would wait a few more years to enjoy this bottle, but ultimately this wine can be consumed in the near or medium term. It already shows very nice balance at this young age. Bottle production is 50,000 units strong.
About This Wine
First produced in 1911, the fruit for Massolino's classic cuvée is selected from seven sites (inc. Briccolina, Collaretto, Broglio and Le Turne), representing roughly seven hectares of prime Serralunga vineyards. The oldest vines that feed this bottling are 55 years old (the youngest are 10), and it spends 24 months in large Slavonian oak casks. An outstanding value that showcases the finesse of Serralunga to a tee.
