Massolino Barbaresco Albesani 2019


In Stock

“The 2019 Barbaresco Albesani captures all the breadth and resonance that is such a signature of this famous hillside site in Neive. Red/purplish fruit, spice, rose petal, lavender, menthol and licorice build with a bit of time in the glass. Bright acids and lively tannins add energy to this super-classic, inviting Barbaresco from Massolino. The 2019 is a dream, not to mention a superb debut. Drinking window: 2027-2039. 94 points

These are the first Barbarescos in Massolino’s long history. “We had a chance to take over some choice plots from a local family,” Franco Massolino told me. “We are lucky to have Dante Scaglione as our consulting winemaker, so we thought: Who better to make these wines?” I certainly can’t argue with that. The 2019s are stellar wines done in the classic Massolino style. Both Barbarescos are highly recommended. Best of all, the 2019s have that immediacy and allure that makes Barbaresco so charming.”
