Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Parafada 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"Serralunga d'Alba. Medium concentrated, deep ruby. Initially very sweet and chocolatey. Sweet rapsberry jam palate, with attractively tactile, grainy tannin and acidity to keep the tension. Needs a bit of age to gain in complexity. Drink from 2013 to 2020. (WS)" (06/11) - 16.5 out of 20 Points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages. Wine: "Deep garnet red with bright hues which naturally evolve with age. The bouquet is intense, very complex, offering a wide range of notes; with remarkable red fruit combined with floral and spicy hints. Especially after a few years of ageing, this Barolo shows all the elegance and charm that only Nebbiolo grapes can offer. Robust, rich and austere. It perfectly reflects the great complexity of the soil in Serralunga d'Alba. The perfect Barolo for long ageing. It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20 degrees C." "The elegant companion for important rice and pasta dishes, such as risotto cooked in Barolo, and rich and tasty main courses, such as roast meats. After a few years of ageing, this Barolo expresses its considerable potential just as well when sipped as a wine for thought and served with hard and medium-hard cheeses." - Winery
