BAROLO Docg Crù Vigna Rionda 2012

The. Agr. Vigna Rionda – MASSOLINO

The history dei Massolino and their wine is linked to the history of Serralunga d’Alba in 1896, When Giovanni he founded his winery. The first cantina it was built by Giuseppe, son of the founder Giovanni, that together with his sister Angela extends the properties in the best lands and in the 1934 is one of the founders of the Consortium for the protection of Barolo and Barbaresco. Making wine with passion, in his territory of origin, preserving the typicality of the autochthonous vine in the belief that among the year, the hills e i winemakers exists a bond deep and palpable, made of affinities cemented by custom to the same places. Tradition that in recent decades has been continued and developed by the sons Franco and Roberto who have acquired, in the late eighties, other land. In addition to the "classic" vineyards from which their excellent barbera comes, dolcetto, nebbiolo, both of Alba and Langhe, the brothers added very important "Crù" vineyards which are now the flagship of this winery: DAISY, PARAFADA, VIGNA RIONDA.

Barolo “Vigna Rionda” it is vinified exclusively from grapes from the vineyard of the same name located in one of the best locations in Serralunga. Giovanni and Renato Massolino the they bought by exchanging a vineyard downstream of greater extension: they had sensed that this land was extraordinary. E’ a Barolo grandioso, and maybe, call it great, it is still an understatement. Vigna Rionda Riserva by the glass has a deep garnet red. The nose is intense with spicy and ripe fruit notes that give rich and very suggestive hints that seem to never end. On the palate it is the most powerful and complete wine of the cellar. E’ as if in Vigna Rionda the essential characteristics of this very famous production area were summarized: power, elegance, persistence. Wine that evolves slowly and which begins to show itself after years of aging: for this reason it is put on the market only after the sixth year and which finds its maturity starting from the tenth year. Great wine, for very demanding palates.
