Massolino Barbera D’ Alba DOC Gisep

Category: Tags: , , , Product ID: 4141


Grape Varieties: 100% Nebbiolo

Quite simply Barolo from Serralunga is at the peak of its potential. Barolo DOCG Vigna Rionda Riserva is the wine we are proudest of.


The most prominent element in the history of our estate, Vigna Rionda is one of the most sought-after and prestigious crus in the area. This prestige goes beyond the microclimate and soil: something happens on that hill and that something gives life to Vigna Rionda Riserva, a truly unique wine.


Colour: bright garnet red.

Bouquet: reveals multiple broad and enveloping sensations, ranging from those of the early years, focused primarily on red fruits and flowers, to the more evolved sensations of brushwood, tobacco and spices that develop with age. This wine is a harmony of captivating nuances that are released and evolve slowly in the glass.

Palate: Vigna Rionda is a unique Barolo, impossible to describe in just a few lines and hard to compare with others, even those from the Serralunga area. A wine capable of complexity, longevity and structure, which come together with unparalleled elegance. A little patience is required for it to reach its full potential, which is why it stays in our cellars until its sixth year, the only wine in our range to do so when it is released as a Riserva.
We recommend decanting and serving at a temperature of 18-20°C.
An ever-evolving wine, it pairs beautifully with meat dishes, rich in intense and persistent aromas and flavours, and with mature cheeses. It is also the perfect meditation wine for those who wish to take their time to enjoy it while relaxing, appreciating its many qualities in their purest form.

Vinification & Aging

after about 10 days of temperature controlled fermentation (around 30°C) in oak fermenters (“tini”), the wine matures partly in French oak barriques and large Slavonian oak casks for up to 18 months.


excellent exposure and very low yields give excellent grapes which make it possible to obtain a wine with considerable complexity. Barbera is a really important grape variety capable of giving remarkable results: with this selection, dedicated to grandfather Giuseppe (“Gisep” in the local dialect), our estate proposes one of its best creations.
