Description

A 75cl bottle of  Massolino Barolo 2017 in an attractive, contemporary gift box.

This classic Barolo from Franco Massolino shows exactly why the Barolo area in northwest Italy has such a good reputation as being home to one of Italy’s best wines (Barolo is often known as the ‘King of Wines’), if far from being the cheapest. Made from the Nebbiolo grape variety from the critical acclaimed 2017 vintage, this is ready to drink now if you decant it or will last for years. The Nebbiolo variety is deceptively moderate in colour but has powerful flavours and fairly high alcohol with noticeable tannins. This has dark berry fruits, mixed herbs, spice and black tea.

Barolo is in Piemonte (or Piedmont, literally meaning foot of the mountain (a nod to the nearby Alps), which is a wine region in Italy’s Northwest, tucked under Milan and just above Genoa. The name Barolo refers to both the wine, and the town Barolo itself. It’s also close to the town of Bra, home to the SlowFood movement, and it really is a food and wine destination, with its autumn truffle season, and excellent cheese and wines. A great place to visit if you are travelling through Italy. Franco Massolino and family are based in Serralunga d’Alba, which makes particularly long-lived Barolo. See www.massolino.it for more. It’s still a young wine so pour into a jug or decant for a few hours before serving, or match it with steaks or heartier lentil dishes. 14.5% ABV.

If this is a gift, just specify at checkout if you’d like a gift message and add the recipient’s address. The wine is packed in a grey bottle box with magnetic closing, with protective wood wool inside, and any gift note is handwritten on a grey label tied around the bottle neck. It is protected by a plain transit box. The protective wood wool is recyclable. Only the grey card of the bottle box is recyclable so we encourage you to reuse this.
