Massolino Barolo Margheria 2013
Other Reds | Italy
About The Producer
This red is packed with plum, cherry, leather and iron aromas and flavors. There's a solid base of tannins, but also freshness and balance. Just needs time for that core of ripe fruit to meld with the structure. Picks up tobacco and wild herb details on the finish, along with an echo of mineral. Best from 2022 through 2042. 550 cases made, 150 cases imported.
The 2013 Barolo Margheria is deep, layered and highly expressive, with a super-classic interplay of beguiling Serralunga aromatics, fruit and structure. Menthol, pine, tobacco, wild cherry and rose petal emerge from this deceptively mid-weight, muscular Barolo. The proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove, the 2013 Margheria has so much to offer, but readers will have to be patient. This is an especially brooding Barolo from Massolino. And it is gorgeous.
A Barolo with lots of cherry jam, chocolate and hazelnut character. Flowers too. Medium body and, beautifully polished tannins with a fantastic texture. Hard not to drink now but made for aging.
