garnet red. Bouquet is ethereal, featuring spicy, tobacco, and brushwood notes;
there are also important mineral notes.
Classic and nicely harmonious wine, tannic when young and with considerable
aging potential, making it an unmistakable “Nebbiolo of Serralunga”.
important wine, it encapsulates all the history of our land and fully expresses
its talents when served with rich dishes, such as roast red meats or game stew.
It is also excellent with medium-mature and mature cheeses.
from a single vineyard that has slightly sandier soils than the estate's other
sites, this lovely wine boasts structure, elegance and a fragrance of rose petal,
wildflower, menthol and perfumed berry. On the precise palate, white pepper and
star anise accent a core of wild cherry and crushed raspberry. It's balanced,
with firm, refined tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2023–2035.

a gorgeous expression of cherry, strawberry and plum fruit, shaded by tobacco,
eucalyptus and tar accents. Remains pure and elegant due to the vibrant
structure, showing terrific balance and a long, fresh aftertaste of fruit, wild
herbs, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2022 through 2043.
points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2015 Barolo Margheria is the first single-vinyard Barolo I tasted from
Massolino in a lineup that started with the most delicate wine and ended with
the most powerful expression. Considering that we are talking about Serralunga
d'Alba (the township known for the most powerful Baroli overall), the word
"delicate" should be taken with a grain of salt. The vines here are
37 years old, and the soils are slightly looser and sandier in nature. This
wine is just slightly more accessible than the other cru expressions with
elegant mineral notes that frame dark fruit, spice and pressed violets. This
could be a good pairing opportunity with Florentine tripe in a tomato sauce.

of plums, cherries and flowers. Sandalwood, too. Medium-to full-bodied with
firm and silky tannins that are chewy. Tannic finish, yet finesse and
refinement at the end. Try in 2022.
