Product description

As of 2016, the Langhe Nebbiolo includes fruit from Monforte d'Alba as well as the traditional source in Serralunga d'Alba. The Cascina I Maschi vineyard lies really close to the border of the Barolo area where the soils are calcareous marls. Starting with the 2018 vintage next year, the blend will also see fruit from a vineyard in Alba on white soils. The Serralunga fruit comes from Massolino's younger Barolo vines--covering approximately 2 hectares. When these vines are old enough they will help produce the Barolo proper. Like all Massolino Nebbiolo, it is aged in large Slavonian oak casks, although the Langhe only spends 12 months in wood, compared with the Barolo's 24+ months. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the style is like a scaled-down Massolino Barolo, one with more immediate fragrance and finesse and less tannin. It is crafted for early enjoyment. Built on perfume and finesse, it's a suave, fragrant, plum-and-lavender-noted Nebbiolo with the salty, chalky undertow that's so typical of Massolino and Serralunga in general.

"This is an elegant, refined take on Nebbiolo, with bright and tonic fruit that just makes it a fun wine. There's an easy structure to the Langhe Nebbiolo, a freshness and very bright appearance that are easy to love. For this one, see if you can get your hands on some Bra sausage." 91 points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate #243
