Massolino Barolo Rionda Riserva 2014
Barolo Vigna Rionda is one of the most representative wines of Serralunga d’Alba. Powerful and structured on the palate, but with an array of elegant, delicate aromatics.
98 points – Vinous
The 2014 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is a stunning wine. Sweet, perfumed and deep, the 2014 is off-the-charts great. Dark red and purplish berry fruit, mint, lavender, spice and hard candy infuse the 2014 with striking layers of nuance. But what really impresses about the 2014 is its depth and huge vertical build. All the elements fall into place in a sumptuous, deep Barolo that screams with character. Beams of tannin punctuate the finish. Massolino’s 2014 is one of the greatest Vigna Riondas I have ever tasted. (AG) 98+

Grandfather Giuseppe was one of the founders of the local winegrowers’ consortium in 1934 and father Giovanni bought the first single vineyard, Parafada. Today, the estate is run by siblings Franco, Roberto and Paola.
