Proud producers of Barolo, Barbaresco and the typical wines of the Langhe, the Massolino family were lucky enough to be born in Serralunga d’Alba, an area of absolute excellence in the geography of great Italian wines. With tenacity and passion, they have been making wine since 1896. Azienda Agricola Massolino Vigna Rionda is the dream of their great-grandfather Giovanni, who founded the estate in 1896. In those days, it was a traditional Langa farm, producing fruit and vegetables, raising livestock and making wine. Their family is firmly at the helm of the historic estate that inhaled the vibrant air full of change of the late 19th century and navigated the tides of the first half of the 20th century. Today, they face the new challenges of the 21st century, in the capable hands of the third and fourth generations. They have always believed in Barolo and its austere uniqueness. They care for it in keeping with the philosophy that inspires their approach to wine – minimal intervention, to capture all the qualities that their soils and grapes can create in the glass.
