Reviews for 2006 Massolino Barolo Vigna Parafada

WS 94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
Dark and richly flavored with black cherry plum and violet. There's a gracefulness here but also density and texture to the tannins which provide grip on the mineral-infused finish. Best from 2013 through 2035. -BS

The 2006 Barolo Parafada is another gorgeous wine from Massolino in this important vintage. Here too the fruit is incredibly primary but in the Parafada the French oak has added a dimension of explosiveness and volume... The 2006 Barolo Parafada is another gorgeous wine from Massolino in this important vintage. Here too the fruit is incredibly primary but in the Parafada the French oak has added a dimension of explosiveness and volume that is captivating. Hints of spices and flowers hint at the inner sweetness that should develop in bottle. The percentage of French oak (35%) has come way down in this bottling which gives the fruit a better chance to shine. I loved this powerful dense Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. -Antonio Galloni
