The 2007 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is a gorgeous wine that presents a stunning perspective on the Nebbiolo grape. Its magic is on full display. Ethereal and elegant, the bouquet presents a never-ending succession of wild fruit, underbrush, cola, licorice, freshly chopped mint, dried ginger, balsam overtones and exotic spice. Think of the grape’s most elegant characteristics and you get them all here. In the mouth, the wine feels fleshy and generous with thick layers of fruit that are amply supported by the firm but fine tannins. Its aging future looks bright. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. ||The Massolino family has deep roots in the Langhe. Great-grandfather Giovanni Massolino founded the winery in 1896 and was the first to bring electricity and a steam-operated machine for harvesting grain to Serralunga d’Alba. Grandfather Giuseppe was one of the founders of the local winegrowers’ consortium in 1934 and father Giovanni bought the first single vineyard, Parafada. Today, the estate is run by siblings Franco, Roberto and Paola. Wine Advocate.June, 2013
