Massolino barolo parussi 2012 Founded in 1896, Massolino is a Piedmont winery known for its structured, robust and long-lived Barolo wines. Parussi is close to the Serralunga, where the terrior is rich in iron. The 'blue' clay soils there makes for more vigour in the vines and a completely different style of wine.
Region: Piedmont, Italy Grape Varietal: Nebbiolo Rating: Robert Parker 94pts, James Suckling 94pts, Antonio Galloni 91pts Tasting Note: Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries are some of the signatures that add nuance throughout. Lifted and gracious, the Parussi is a typical Castiglione Falletto Barolo built on mid-weight structure.
Ceretto Barolo Brunate 2015 Founded in 1930, Ceretto is best known for its Bricco Rocche Barolo in Castiglione Falletto, while their Prapò Barolo from Serralunga d'Alba is excellent and a fine value. The Brunate is one of the most representative vineyards of the municipality of La Morra, its character is intense, elegant and persistent with red fruits, tobacco and licorice aromas. The aging improves its taste with truffle and cinnamon aromas.
Region: Piedmont, Italy Grape Varietal: Nebbiolo Rating: Robert Parker 96pts, James Suckling 96pts, Antonio Galloni 94pts Tasting Note: The 2015 Barolo Brunate is yet another silky and fine red wine with perhaps a tiny bit more structure and firmness at the back than the other single-vineyard offerings from Ceretto. It is beautifully accessible and elegant.
