Vintage wine : Barolo Docg Parafada 2016
Ratings/Awards : 96

The 2016 Barolo Parafada is fabulous. In fact, the 2016 is one of the best – if not the best – Parafadas I have ever tasted at Massolino. The natural richness of this site marries with the translucence of the year to produce a weightless yet powerful, highly nuanced Barolo that hits all the right notes. Dark cherry, lavender, spice, mint, rose petal and licorice develop in the glass, but it is the interplay of richness and lightness that elevates the Parafada into the realm of the truly sublime. I have never tasted a Parafada like this here. What a wine!
