Founded in 1896, Massolino Winery, is based in and around the town of Serralunga, one of the prime sub-zones of the Barolo DOC.

Today the wines of Massolino sit comfortably among the finest of the region – they are wines of wonderful purity and elegance.

M+Q Notes

"Massolino's 2012 Barolo is a super-attractive mid-weight wine. Freshly cut flowers, mint, raspberries and sweet red cherries all lift from the glass in a feminine, gracious Barolo built on pure class and nuance. Fine, silky tannins add to an overall impression of grace and class. There is so much to like here." 90 points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, Nov 2015"Very pretty aromas of terra-cotta, ripe fruit and hints of chilies. Full body, round and silky tannins, bright acidity and an attractive combination of citrus and plum. Drink or hold." - James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com
