About this wine
The 2011 Barolo Massara offers great intensity and a very polished, clean style. This is a lightweight wine, but what it lacks in power, it makes up for in persistence and determination. The bouquet shows elegant aromas of wild berry, resin, tar and cola.
Castello di Verduno's 2011 Barolo Massara is soft, open-knit and expressive, all qualities that make it a good choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice, spice and worn-in leather add nuance throughout. The 2011 is an attractive wine, but it could use a bit more focus and delineation. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later.
