The Nebbiolo d’Alba di Massolino is the product that allows you to "approach" the great emotions offered by a Langa wine. This red is produced from the same grapes that the company uses for the production of Barolo Serralunga, declining them to a simpler drink. The harvest takes place in the second half of October and, as for Barolo, the grapes are macerated for about ten days and then "age" only 1 year in cask before bottling. In the glass it is bright garnet red and the nose is delicate and pleasant with hints of raspberry, viola. On the palate it is elegant, with delicate tannins and has a great harmony. A small Barolo.
