Robert Parker – 97

The Massolino 2014 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is a wine that speaks of vintage as articulately as it speaks of site. The 2014 vintage is one of the most distinctive within these past two decades, with a quality of fruit that is fine, light, ethereal and almost fragile. However, Serralunga d’Alba, where the Vignarionda cru is located, is always characterized by extra power, structure and fruit weight. In a sense, this Riserva represents an intersection between those two opposites, showing both elegance and muscle. The wine opens to a pretty garnet color, and the aromatic intensity is well developed and capped by a mid-weight finish. Wild berry tones are followed by iron ore, blood orange and camphor ash. Massolino farms 2.6 hectares within the cru with calcareous and marlstone soils. Some 8,500 bottles were made, and this wine will be released in September 2020. [Monica Larner, 16/06/2020]

Vinous – 93-96

Massolino’s 2014 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda comes across as quite raw and unpolished at this stage. There is a classicism and austerity to the wine in barrel that is incredibly alluring. Time in the glass coaxes out the exotic inner sweetness and perfume that make Barolos from this site so captivating. And I am pretty sure time in barrel will soften some of the edges that are apparent today. [Antonio Galloni, 02/01/2018]

Serralunga d’Alba. Still in cask, to be released in 2020 after more than three and a half years in cask. Lustrous medium-deep ruby. Gorgeous, minty raspberry nose – but this is not from oak, as this is aged only in large oak casks. Beautiful depth and elegance. Full spread of gorgeous tannins and fine-fruit both clinging to the palate. A thoroughbred. (WS) [29/11/2017]
