2009 Massolino 'Parafada' Serralunga d'Alba Barolo
*Slight Label Wear*
Winemaker Notes: The Massolino Parafada comes from the estate's oldest vines. The wine displays deep garnet red with bright hues which naturally evolve with age. On the nose, intense, very complex, offering a wide range of notes; with remarkable red fruit combined with floral and spicy hints. Especially after a few years of ageing, this Barolo shows all the elegance and charm that only Nebbiolo grapes can offer. On the palate, robust, rich and austere. It perfectly reflects the great complexity of the soil in Serralunga d'Alba.
The perfect Barolo for long ageing.
Wine Spectator - "A bright, pure red, offering cherry and raspberry flavors accented by cedar, tobacco and woodsy notes. Linear and taut, presenting a firm grip of tannins, with plenty of energy driving the long, mouthwatering finish."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Barolo Parafada (also a product of the rich, clay soils of Serralunga d’Alba) presents the darkest color of the three and bursts open with ripe flavors of dried blackberry, tobacco, used leather and licorice. But this is in no way a one-dimensional wine. It offers delightful endnotes of blue flower, peppermint, black mineral and cola that come as a pleasant surprise. The wine needs a few more years to open fully."
