Review

With the Massolino's there are no banal wines. The level of the second lines, in fact, is absolute, so much so that Moscato, Dolcetto, and Chardonnay express themselves at quality levels of exceptional complexity. Barbera is no exception. Produced by Massolino since 1896, the first vintage to be bottled, the house Barbera d'Alba comes from four hectares in Serralunga and expresses all the class and facets of a great Langa wine. To preserve its typical acidity and the exquisite dynamic tension upon drinking it, Massolino lets its Barbera age in steel only, for about six months: the result is an intriguing, crunchy, lively and immediately elegant wine.

With its intense purplish red colour which is almost impenetrable, as per the textbook, Massolino's Barbera d'Alba has an enveloping, soft and captivating bouquet, from which emerge the intense and fruity notes characteristic of the variety. Piercing, fresh and well balanced, it is an easy-to-drink wine, not excessively demanding but at the same time tasty and rich. It goes perfectly with the cuisine of the Langhe and with very tasty dishes in general. Excellent with pasta first courses, rice and soups, braised or grilled red meat and medium-aged cheeses. Perfect also as an aperitif with appetizers and cold cuts.

Fruity purper red

I was looking for a simple, not too expensive, but yet elegant red wine. The house Massolino I already knew from their great Barolo's, so I thought that their Barbera d'Alba could be the one I was looking for. And right I was. I love this fruity, purper red, especilay with some old cheese, spicy sausage or just on it's own.

Une barbera solaire

Robe framboise, larmes épaisses. Nez fruits noirs, prune, très mûr. La bouche est tendue, acidité structurante. Toujours des fruits noirs, mûre en tête, pointe d'épices qui nous rappelle que nous sommes proches de la méditerranée. Jolie finale, pointe de ronce. L'acidité s'est un peu mise en retrait le 2ème jour.

Buena Barbera de Massolino

Vino muy bien hecho, con buena expresión tanto en nariz como en boca. Un muy buen ejemplo de Barbera D’Alba, que sin duda ganará con algo más de tiempo en botella.
