Massolino Barolo Parrusi 2011
Appearance: deep garnet red Bouquet: ethereal and enveloping with intense and persistent notes of sweet spices, sandalwood, tobacco and leather. Flavour: Great structure. Remarkable tannin which softens with time and make it a perfect wine also for ageing. Its very long finish is typical of Barolos from Castiglione Falletto.
Wine EnthusiastPoints 0 This classic Barolo opens with aromas of ripe dark berry, forest floor and a balsamic note. On the palate, clove, pepper and licorice back up a core of crushed black cherry and raspberry. It's young but already remarkably well balanced, with tightly knit, refined tannins and nervous acidity. Drink 2019–2029.
Wine SpectatorThis is lushly textured, featuring cherry, plum and spice flavors, with hints of tar and mineral. Shows a coarse grain to the tannins, but will need time to soften. Finishes long and savory. Best from 2019 through 2032.-B.S.
Wine AdvocateWith fruit from Castiglione Falletto, the 2011 Barolo Parussi is an epic wine with thick layers of dark fruit, spice and pressed rose. This expression is absolutely irresistible in terms of its generosity, overall intensity and silky smoothness. It presents a more immediate style with soft lines and a generous, fruity texture. Massolino has produced an impressive line of new releases.
