Stelvin. This wine is simply a 'declassified' Barolo. It comes from Massolino's younger Barolo vines--covering approx. 2-hectares--in Serralunga. When these vines are old enough they will help produce the Barolo proper. As was the case in 2014 and 2015 some fruit from the older Barolo vines also make it into this cuvée. Like all Massolino Nebbiolo, it is aged in large Slavonian oak casks, although the Langhe only spends 12-18 months in wood, compared with the Barolo's 24+ months. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the style is like a scaled-down Massolino Barolo, one with more immediate fragrance and finesse and less tannin. It is crafted for early enjoyment.
Built on perfume and finesse, it's a suave, fragrant, cherry and wild strawberry noted Nebbiolo with the savoury, chalky undertow that's so typical of Massolino and Serralunga in general. - Importer Note
