Critical Acclaim

WE93 Wine Enthusiast 10/1/2016

"This fragrant, juicy red opens with scents of perfumed blue flower, ripe black-skinned berry, leather and dark baking. The chewy palate offers fleshy black cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon, star anise and a hint of mocha alongside well-integrated tannins. Drink 2019–2024." (93 pts.)

JS93 JamesSuckling.com Thursday, March 10, 2016

"Very pretty aromas of terra-cotta, ripe fruit and hints of chilies. Full body, round and silky tannins, bright acidity and an attractive combination of citrus and plum. Drink or hold." (93 pts.)

SP92 Wine Spectator Mar 31, 2017

"Saturated with cherry, strawberry, white pepper and mineral flavors, this red is lean yet intense, offering a fine balance between dusty tannins and sweet fruit. Best from 2019 through 2035. 5,400 cases made." (92 pts.)

VN90 Vinous Mar 2016

"Massolino’s 2012 Barolo is a super-attractive mid-weight wine. Freshly cut flowers, mint, raspberries and sweet red cherries all lift from the glass in a feminine, gracious Barolo built on pure class and nuance. Fine, silky tannins add to an overall impression of grace and class. There is so much to like here. The main vineyard sites are Briccolina, Collaretto, Broglio and Le Turne, all in Serralunga." (90 pts.)

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
