Barolo Massara Castello di Verduno

The Massara vineyard was purchased in 1910 directly from the House of Savoy by Cavalier GB Burlotto.  The vineyard is situated at 265 meters above sea level on 1.22 hectares entirely planted to Nebbiolo. 

The vineyards are situated at an East/Southeast exposure and are situated on the celebrated Marne di Sant’Agata soil (comprised of 30% sand – 55% clay – 15% calcium).  Harvest is completed entirely by hand, carefully selecting the best bunches and placing them in small perforated boxes.  This meticulous selection leads to the production of a wine that is powerful and age-worthy.   

Once at the winery, the grapes are macerated in wooden vats over a 40 day period; with the traditional splitting of the cap to continue the maximum extraction from the skins even after the end of fermentation. Aging takes place over the course of 32 months in large oak barrels and for two further months in stainless steel hands. The wine is refined in the bottle over the course of 21 months before it is released to market. 

Taste: A beautiful example of Nebbiolo from Piedmont. Tart red fruit-driven showing sour cherries, cranberries, and lingonberry. The fruit is complemented by notes of Sichuan Peppercorns, balsamic, dried thyme and crushed red rose petals. The wine is bone dry, full-bodied and extremely structured with gripping tannins and mouth-watering acidity.
Cellaring Potential: Enjoy now or age 10+ years.
Food Matching: Braised duck, roasted fennel, buttered noodles with white truffle.
