The Massolino family are the largest holders in the Vigna Rionda with 3.5
hectares (two planted to Nebbiolo) with vines in the 38- to 45-year-old bracket.
The wines from this exceptional site begin life as a coiled spring, which is why
Massolino releases it with extra age: at six years (for the standard Riserva
release). With enough age, Vigna Rionda blossoms into an intensely perfumed,
ultra-fine, pure and succulent wine with very fine tannins. For the 2015 cuvee
expect notes of sweet dark cherry and plum, lifted lavender, spice and mint that
exist in haromony. A beautifully layered expression of Barolo.
