The Langhe district is situated in southern Piedmont, in North-West Italy, and is one of the country’s most successful winegrowing areas.
It stretches from the feet of the Alps and is made up of a hill complex set at altitudes ranging from 200 to 450 meters above sea level.
The soil is mainly calcareous but its compactness and composition vary from hill to hill.
The most prestigious grape variety grown in the “Langhe” is undoubtedly Nebbiolo: an exceptionally interesting, but also demanding and difficult, autochthonous grape variety which, in this area only, finds the perfect cultivation conditions for the production of Barolo, one of the world’ s greatest red wines.
Serralunga d’Alba is a pretty little village set in the heart of the Barolo production zone.
The entire Barolo production zone covers just over 1.700 hectares, which are split among 11 municipalities, with a total production of about 10,000,000 bottles
The Massolino winery is situated in the historical centre of the village, dominated by a magnificent medieval castle.
Massolino wines are exclusively produced from the grapes grown in the family owned vineyards, about 22 hectares, located within the municipality of Serralunga d’Alba.
( A vineyard of 1.3 hectares, in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto, was bought a few years ago)
