2007 - Massolino Barolo Parafada
- Drinking Window:
- 93 AG; 93+ ST
The 2007 Barolo Parafada is more of a muscular, fruit-driven wine than most of the estate's other Baroli. There is less in the way of aromatic expressiveness and a more over sense of body and richness on the palate. Layers of deep, muscular fruit flow effortlessly to the round, sensual and totally striking finish. The 2007 is the first Parafada to be aged entirely in cask since the late 1980s, which is finally allowing the vineyard's qualities to emerge with great clarity. This parcel, with vines that are now more than 60 years old, was purchased by Franco Massolino's father when he was just 16 years old – not old enough to legally sign the contract, but clearly wiser beyod his years.
