Massolino Serralunga d'Alba Barbera d'Alba 2013

$26.99

Pure (no oak), juicy, food-friendly and fun to drink. With bright, juicy, acidity and almost no natural tannin, this wakes up your palate and makes your mouth water but also pumps out more than enough ripe cherry/berry fruit to avoid any harshness. A great pizza/pasta wine for sure, but try it with with a light chill on a warm day and you'll be pretty happy. A beautiful, classy, and flat out fun wine!

Dark acid bomb on opening. Mellowed out with some air.

Could use a little more acid, and soul. But nice.

A tasty Barbera. Don't pair with a smoky steak off the grill, but it would pair well with a bolognese or prosciutto & melon appetizer. A touch of tartness, a fair bit of oak, but drinking well and full of fruit. Kind of like a funkier Merlot. This needs at least an hour of air.

Slightly thin and lacking structure. Nice compromise of fruit and acidity with strong blueberry, dried dark fruits, and cassis. Opens into clove and more fruits yet presents as a little thin.

Paired with braised local beef short ribs & mushrooms with mashed potatoes (with reduced braising liquid), asparagus (braised with Clos du Bois Petite Sirah Knights Valley and beef broth). Really a wonderful pairing. Medium weight, cherry candy and dark red fruit. Nice acidity and balance after one hour decant. Some spice. Decent length on the finish.

After the initial baby poop nose, it mellowed out to a nice glass to pair with a meal

2013. A little young. Some barnyard aroma a little underipe fruit. Slightly tart flavor. Seems like it might open up in time.
