After a surprise appearance on Monday, the sun continued to play hard to get. As I drove from La Morra to Serralunga d'Alba, the vineyards were shrouded in fog. My first stop was at Massolino, an estate I looked forward to visiting because I have some bottles in my cellar. The azienda agricola was founded by Giovanni Massolino in 1896.
After tasting the 2008s and 2009s from barrel, Franco Massolino and I tasted verticals of three single-vineyard Barolos dating back to 1982.
