A deep, somewhat mature nose with notes of mushrooms, dried cherries, paint and dry asphalt. Very, very good.
The taste is tight and restrained with less maturity than on the nose, with notes of red cherries, asphalt, rosehips and dry licorice. 3+ years.

2018 Barolo, Massolino
No Cru´s in 2018 so this is a blend of all vineyards. The nose is young and forward with notes of roses, cherries, bakelite, tobacco and a hint of sage. Complex and fine.
The taste is finely balanced with focus and a nice structure. Notes of red cherries, tobacco, herbs and fresh flowers. Silky tannins. 6+ years.
