Massolino Barolo 2013
Beguiling scents of fragrant berry, rose petal, baking spice, new leather and aromatic herbs swirl around in the glass. The vibrant palate is loaded with finesse, doling out morello cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and star anise, while polished tannins and bright acidity provide impeccable balance. It's just gorgeous and while it's already accessible, it also shows midterm aging potential.
Offers alluring aromas of sweet, ripe cherry and berry, rose and truffle. Firms up on the palate, yet expands the range of flavors, adding leather, iron and underbrush notes. Finishes on the burly side, but should repay aging. Fine length. Best from 2020 through 2033. 5,200 cases made.
