Beautiful rose petals, tar and smoked meat nose mixed with dried red fruits. Bright acidity and tamed tannin after 6 hrs decant.

Strawberry, raspberry, cherry, cranberry, red currant, forest floor and subtle truffle. This wine was flavorful and intense! Will do well with time and aeration. So delicious!

Although the 2012 vintage weather wise was a little difficult for all producers here in the piedmont region but, some producers have been able to still come up with some really nice wines. 2011 and 2013's have a little more structure but the 2012 Massolino Serralunga d' Alba is elegant, with notes of licorice, rose and I'm detecting hints of bacon fat as well.
