Massolino Barolo is a great classic wine, with 30 months of ageing in French oak barrels. The result is an elegant, precise and extremely pleasant red which sets itself apart due to its excellent quality/price ratio.
What does this wine taste like?
With a perfectly defined bouquet, the Massolino Barolo is notable for its floral aromas (roses and violets), red fruits (raspberries and strawberries), nutmeg, leather and liquorice, on a balsamic and mineral background. It's a real pleasure to swirl the glass gently and be captivated by its open and expressive nose. On palate it exhibits plenty of body and comes over rounded, with fine and silky tannins.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson
A contemporary classic.
This is typical of Massolino's entry level Barolos. A combination of firmness, gentleness, and class. Very young now, it will begin to come on its own in 10+ years. Highly recommended.
It needs time
This wine is tasty & beautifully perfumed but it really is way too young. I regret opening it as it needs a few years to relax. Like all of us really.
Ready to drink. It is a very good intense and complex barolo that you can drink now or leave in cellar
