Massolino Vigna Rionda Ettichetta Nera Barolo 2016
Massolino is a highly regarded winery in Piedmont known for its Barolo DOCG wines. The Vigna Rionda is one of their most prized wines and the Black Label is the jewel.
"Tasting this Vigna Rionda is such a sensual experience, with the complexity you’d expect from the top-level Barolo, showing hints of iodine, dark mussels, walnuts, dark stones to the fleshy dark cherries and plums. Then it turns a little “bloody,” minty and tarry on the nose. “Dark” and full-bodied with a massive amount of small-grained tannins seamlessly knitting the fruit on the palate, driving it to a very long, mineral finish." - 97pts, James Suckling
