Massolino Barbera d'Alba 2019

Stelvin. Like the estate's Dolcetto, Giovanni Angeli has delivered a superb Barbera this year. Cropped from 2.2-hectares of limestone-rich vineyard in Serralunga d'Alba, the vines are Guyot-trained and are approximately 10 to 45-years-old. In terms of the winemaking, the wine fermented for 10-12 days in stainless steel and was raised in the same vessels for a short period of maturation; the wine is usually bottled and released for sale during the spring after the harvest. It's a succulent and perfumed release packed with fleshy blueberry and Satsuma plum flavours and a tangy, vibrant close.

"Massolino’s barbera is often my go-to from their range despite the range soaring into Barolo crus of note. Here, we find low yields and a well-maintained, single vineyard are also elements at play. It hangs out only in stainless steel and is bottled relatively young.

"Here's a fresh, primary expression of Barbera that highlights dark fruit and sweet summer cherry. The Massolino 2019 Barbera d'Alba is all about that fresh and succulent fruit, although, if you spend a little extra time examining the bouquet, you will uncover nicely integrated aromas of forest floor and button mushroom. It ages in cement for six months. This is a cheerful, exuberant and fruit-driven wine that calls out for a plate of fettuccine with porcini. It's not a particularly complex or complicated wine, but it gains points for its easy and proud accessibility." 90 points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
