Massolino Barolo Parafada 2013
0 Aromas of new leather, ripe dark berry, vineyard dust and a whiff of smoky flint waft out of the glass along with floral and balsamic notes. The full-bodied palate shows great energy and intensity, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, ripe cranberry, white pepper and clove framed in youthfully assertive, refined tannins and bright acidity. A mineral note wraps up the lingering finish. With time, this will develop even greater complexity. Drink 2023-2053.
Cherry and cigar box aromas introduce this juicy, linear red. Strawberry, cherry, floral and chalky mineral flavors are persistent and pure as this retreats into a tannic structure. Shows terrific length, so be patient. Best from 2022 through 2038. 1,066 cases made.
