The 2009 Barolo Parafada (also a product of the rich, clay soils of Serralunga d’Alba) presents the darkest color of the three and bursts open with ripe flavors of dried blackberry, tobacco, used leather and licorice. But this is in no way a one-dimensional wine. It offers delightful endnotes of blue flower, peppermint, black mineral and cola that come as a pleasant surprise. The wine needs a few more years to open fully. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028. - ML

A bright, pure red, offering cherry and raspberry flavors accented by cedar, tobacco and woodsy notes.

A bright, pure red, offering cherry and raspberry flavors accented by cedar, tobacco and woodsy notes. Linear and taut, presenting a firm grip of tannins, with plenty of energy driving the long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2017 through 2032. 375 cases made. — BS

(from 60-year-old vines, the estate's oldest): Good bright red. Slightly reduced aromas of red cherry, redcurrant, sweet butter and licorice.

Slightly reduced aromas of red cherry, redcurrant, sweet butter and licorice. Very rich, silky and ripe; at once savory and sweet, with subtle concentration and a liqueur-like quality to its flavors of raspberry coulis, mocha and spices. A step up in texture from the Margheria but less perfumed than that wine. Balanced, sexy Barolo with substantial ripe tannins. This is from a steep, chalky slope whose vines normally retain high acidity. (Incidentally, through 2006 the Parafada was aged partly in barriques but Massolino discontinued that "experiment.")- ST

Black chocolate, cloves, pomegranate. Big, powerful and spicy, loads of fruit with notes of liquorice and anise. Well-balanced palate with good freshness and structure. Read more at...

Aromas of dark berries and hints of cut oak. Full-bodied with pure and bright fruit such as raspberries and lemon rind. This needs another two or three years to come together
