WINE ADVOCATE

Barolo 2004 Robert Parker

The 2004 Barolo is a classically-built wine redolent
of perfumed, sweet fruit, violets, spices, tar, new
leather, menthol and herbs. This medium-bodied,
firm Barolo offers outstanding elegance and purity.
It is a terrific effort at this level. Anticipated maturity:
2010-2014. Brothers Franco and Roberto Massolino
have a top-flight 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.
The Parafada is the only Barolo that sees French
oak.
