Deep purplish, almost impenetrable red. Elegant, sweet and tempting, the intense and fruity notes characteristic of Barbera emerge. Vinous, fresh and well balanced. An easy to drink wine which is tasty and rich without being excessively binding. Perfect with Langhe cuisine and very tasty dishes in general. Excellent with pasta, and soup, braised or grilled red meats and medium-mature cheeses. It is also perfect for aperitifs, with appetizers and sliced meats.

Wine AdvocateMassolino's 2018 Barbera d'Alba is an easy-drinking expression, with bright acidity and crunchy, dark fruit flavors. This wine is made in stainless steel only, following a classic, non-interventionist approach, with simple pump-overs during fermentation for up to 15 days, depending on the vintage. After it is cold stabilized, it is then put into the bottle for a short period, just to relax a bit more than anything else. It's a simple, fresh Barbera that's a good match for prosciutto and cold cuts.
