Massolino 2016 Barolo, Serralunga d'Alba

This beautiful 2016 Barolo should not only be on your table but also in your cellar for many more years to come. Aged in oak for 30 months, then bottle aged for over a year ... The wine comes from vines of Nebbiolo grapes in age 10 to 55 years – and for those with a penchant for history, this wine has been produced since 1911 (109 years). As for the wine: lots of sour cherry and earthy notes kick things off, while the acidity is totally on-point ... The deeper and more in depth you go you'll find dark fruit, mocha, coffee bean, but that fruit keeps coming back ripe and juicy. The finish doles out tobacco/cigar box and the dark fruit actually turns red with red currant and cherry. Amazing bottle that will hold 20-plus-years in the cellar.  Rating: **** ½
