FINEST & RAREST

Italy and Italian-style - NOW FINISHED: BAROLO, Vigna Rionda Reserva, Massolino. Piedmont

2007 BAROLO, Margheria, Massolino. Piedmont

Bin: 738
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Area: Alba is the main wine town of Piedmont, home of both the revered white truffle and the great wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. This wine comes from one of the great villages of Barolo, Serralunga, and specifically the 1.7 hectare vineyard 'Margheria'. Nebbiolo is very sensitive to microclimate - this is at 330 metres, an ideal altitude for frost protection and is shielded from northern winds by the Castelletto hills
Grape Variety: 100% Nebbiolo, aged in a variety of different sized oak casks, for over 3 years
Producer: Franco Massolino makes both old-school and modern Barolo, this being his most tradtional wine, with long maceration and oak ageing. Only the best grapes can take this type of vinification, and only in the best years
Cellar Potential: 2017 - 2027
Food Match: Barolo needs the right food. Slow-braised red meat the obvious option
Old Bridge Rating: Top-quality traditional Barolo. Not deep in colour, not rich in fruit; it's all about perfume, elegance and under-stated substance. Decant an hour in advance
