Massolino Barolo Vigna Rionda Riserva 2014

“The 2013 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda is a powerhouse. Not surprisingly, Massolino gave the 2013 an extra year in cask to soften the fierce tannins, but that may not have been enough. The 2013 remains potent and explosive in the glass, with searing tannins and tons of intensity. From time to time, Rionda aromatics emerge, but only with great reluctance. Readers will have to be patient with the 2013. I don’t see it being ready to deliver pleasure any time soon. The 2013 was stunning from barrel, and will likely be equally compelling from bottle…one day.”

“Wonderful perfume here. Sweet cherry and red fruits, plenty of spice and floral notes, thyme and damp leaves, even a little liquorice. It’s firm in acidity, slightly bony, the tannin a little austere and drying, but there’s certainly ample sweet red fruit to go with it. A cool feel, dried herb and orange in the mix, and a just a little hardness to tannin as it closes. Excellent wine. One of the best from the vintage, I’d say.”
