Massolino Serralunga D’Alba DOCG 2006

Friday I was willing to take on the world so I thought I’m in need of a Nebbiolo.  As the Aussie dollar is so high, imports are on the cheap and on my buying agenda.

If this was a horse it would be a bullet out of the gate! I normally find it tough going when it comes to Barolo but words like seductive and complete come to mind in relation to this wine.  Everything says balance.  The tannin structure is quite serious but the flavours of bitumen, boot polish, earth, 5 spice and perfumed roses intermingle on the palate.  Sophisticated and cerebral.
