The Massolino family’s history as winegrowers in Serralunga stretches back more than a century.

Founded in 1896 by Giovanni Massolino, the family’s history is richly intertwined with that of the whole region. They now farm 23 hectares across prime real estate in the Serralunga sub-region, with premium holdings on the famed slopes of Margheria, Parafada and the legendary vineyard Vigna Rionda.

These are wines that, while classic, have continued to evolve over each generation in pursuit of the purest expression of the beloved Nebbiolo grape.

One of the great wine families of Piedmonte and the wines are prized in the best cellars and restaurants in the world.

Tasting Notes

95+ Points Antonio Galloni
The 2006 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is young. Very young. Today the fruit remains quite primary and the aromatics have yet to develop. Still, it is impossible not to admire the wine’s structure and the sheer integrity of its fruit. I especially like the way the 2006 continues to open up as it sits in the glass. This is a hugely promising wine from the Massolino brothers, but readers will have to be patient.
