Massolino Serralunga d'Alba Barolo 2012

This is a very good Barolo from Massolino in the Barolo subregion of Serralunga d'Alba.  There's a bit more about Massolino in this interesting article from Stephen Brook in Decanter on some of the top Barolo and Barbaresco producers (see the link here).


The 2012 vintage has aromatics of herbs, roses and bright cherry.  The fruit tastes delicious, the tannins are built to last and the length really quite long.  Classic Barolo in a firm Serralunga style.  One to buy.  (Alc: not recorded, Region: Barolo, Rating: Very Good, Drink: now (with decanting) and well into the future)
