"Massolino's straight Barolo is a fabulous wine in its peer group." - Antonio Galloni."

Producer

The Azienda Agricola Massolino Vigna Rionda was founded in 1896 by great-grandfather Giovanni Massolino. Today, already in the fourth generation, the company is dedicated to the production of high quality wines. The excellent locations of this winery and the great dedication to the production and preparation of the grapes have brought this winery to the top of the Barolo producers. In 1990 a new cellar was opened in Serralunga d'Alba, which allows the wines to be stored at controlled temperature and humidity. The wines that are produced all come from the own vineyards.
