James Suckling – Aromas of cherries, cedar and strawberries with some subtle cream follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh and flavorful finish. Very pretty.

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo is a clear, direct and immediate wine. It offers those characteristic varietal tones of dried berry fruit, rose hip and licorice with a cheerful and informal approach. This bouquet is mild in terms of intensity, but all the main components are there. There is a very subtle note of sweetness or softness in the mouth that makes this wine a good choice to drink within the next two or three years. With 40,000 bottles made, this wine should be relatively easy to source.

About This Wine

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 makes it into this cuvée. Like all Massolino Nebbiolo, it is aged in large Slavonian oak casks, although the Langhe only spends 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. From grapes picked in the first week of November, the 2016 is built on perfume and finesse. It's a suave, classic, forest floor and wild berry noted Nebbiolo with the savoury, chalky minerality that's so typical of Massolino and Serralunga in general.
