"One of the best Barolo Classico ever!" - Franco and Roberto Massolino.

Massolino Barolo DOCG is a multi-award-winning red wine from scenic Piedmont that has a great identity and is surprisingly approachable as an ideal dining companion. We are happy to recommend the variety of sweet, ripe grapes with fruity berry notes for hearty cuisine. The berry bouquet and the floral elegance of the taste harmonize perfectly with spicy meat dishes, such as hearty game with aromatic mushrooms and a sonorous sauce.

Our tip: Temper the red wine to around 17°C beforehand so that it can fully develop its powerful aroma potential. Because then you will experience a characterful Barolo from the Nebbiolo grape with floral, refreshing nuances. Juicy wild berries and herbaceous mint unite to create a fine balance that develops into a pleasant structure on the tongue. While the first sip says goodbye with a medium aftertaste, the deep garnet red in the glass already enchants the next moment of pleasure.

Even at a young age, the Barolo from Massolino can enchant connoisseurs. Thanks to the good tannin content, the dry Italian does not shy away from long aging in the bottle.
