Tasting Note: While still powerful, Barbaresco expresses a more gentle side of Nebbiolo, often with softer tannins, delicate fruit and an elegant perfume. Expressions of rose petal, cherry, strawberry, violets, smoke and spice.
*DECANTER 94 POINTS*:
"The 2019 is the first vintage ever for Massolino with Barbaresco. A precise, even reductive style typical of the estate, it has an amazing definition of violet, rose and rhubarb melded with balsamic whiffs and savoury liquorice in depth. Firm acidity and tannins dominate the palate with elegance and integration; a woven structure which flows with dusty, ripe tannins and lifted freshness. More elegant than powerful, its quintessentially Barbaresco and not without sufficient concentration for ageing."
*SUCKLING 93 POINTS*:
" A pretty mineral nose showing blood orange, rust and a racy, dark raspberry and cranberry character. A hint of dry earth and vanilla as well. Very firm and sinewy with a medium-to full-bodied palate, showing impressive purity and fine grip. Very well-made. Drink or hold."
*ROBERT PARKER 93 POINTS*:
"The Massolino 2019 Barbaresco offers fine and delicate fiber with plenty of wild berry, blue flower, licorice and crushed stone. With 10,000 bottles produced, this wine remains a fresh and accessible taste of Nebbiolo from the gentle hills of Barbaresco."(ML)(06/22)
*VINOUS 92 POINTS*:
" The 2019 Barbaresco is the first Barbaresco in Massolino's long history. Effusive aromatics and bright, red-toned fruit lend considerable immediacy and charm, but as is so often the case, that first impression of elegance is backed up by some pretty serious tannins. This taut, nervy Barbaresco needs time to soften, but it is so impressive. The 2019 saw about three weeks on the skins, with indigenous fermentations, and was aged in cask. It's a gorgeous wine by any measure. Vineyard sites are Starderi, Albesani and Serraboella." (AG)(09/21)
