Franco Massolino has done a wonderful job of marrying change with a respect for tradition. Grapes are sourced from several vineyards in the commune of Serralunga d'Alba, from up to 60-year old vines, resulting in structured, robust and long-lived Barolos. TASTING 2015: This wine has a bright ruby-garnet colour and has intense perfumes of dark fruit and a touch of cloves with a savoury, herbal note. On the palate, it is full-bodied yet elegant, with plenty of robust but ripe tannins supporting the dark, dried plum and autumn compote fruit character and balancing the acidity. The finish is long and fine, with perfumes of roses and violets. It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C. It achieves its best expression when served with red meats, particularly game, and with dishes dressed with truffle. It is also excellent with fresh egg pasta and meat sauce, and with risotto, as well as medium-mature cow’s milk and goat’s milk cheeses.
