WINE ADVOCATE

Vigna Rionda Riserva 2004 Robert Parker

” The 2004 Barolo Riserva Vigna Rionda (tasted from
cask) reveals a compelling bouquet of violets, black
cherries and spices, with a beautifully layered
quality to the fruit and silky tannins. Today it comes
across very much like the 1996 did at a similar
stage. This will be a fascinating Barolo to follow.
Brothers Franco and Roberto Massolino have a topflight
set of wines with their 2004 Barolos. The
wines are fermented in cement, then undergo
malolactic fermentation in a combination of cement
and steel prior to being racked into large Slavonian
oak casks for roughly two and half years.”
