This is the only Barolo vineyard that Massolino owns outside of Serralunga, ‘the egg outside of the nest’ as an old Piemonte saying goes. On the crest of the ridge, Parussi sits right next to the Serralunga border on the Castiglione Falletto side. The blue, iron-rich Sant'Agata marls here are a little lighter and more oxygenated, with more silt and less clay than in Serralunga. This makes for more vigour in the vines and a completely different style of wine. The Massolino family were attracted to the excellent south-east to south-west exposure of the vines, combined with the age of the vines (45 years) and the vineyard’s situation at 290 metres above sea level. To this day, Massolino is the only Barolo producer to bottle a single-vineyard wine from this Cru.


As always, this is quite different from the Serralunga wines, with more pungent depth and firmer tannins. It is an outstanding example of Castiglione Falletto—with the depth of the place and the class of Massolino. Again, fermented and aged in large oak, with around two weeks on skins, this is one of the best examples of this wine to date.

Reviews

“The 2019 Barolo Parussi is Massolino's sole Barolo from Castiglione Falletto. A wine of total grace and refinement, the 2019 is pure seduction. Freshly cut flowers, mint, sweet red berry fruit, orange peel and rose petal soar out of the glass. Readers will find an elegant, sublime Barolo that hits all the right notes. Don't miss it.”
97 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
“Raspberry, roses, such perfume and finesse, almond too. Succulent, a flood of ripe red fruit and mouth-perfume, Such succulence, perfume and poise, a pinch of orange zest, supple ‘minerally’ feel to tannin, and gee they sit so well inside the wine, and the finish is long and pure with a brick dust/crushed stone texture. Parussi seems to have gone up a notch in 2019. Superb.”
