Brand Mauro Molino

Italy's best source for wine reviews, the Gambero Rosso, raves about the family-owned and managed Mauro Molino estate: 'The Molinos again showed why they are among the top Langhe producers. Credit goes in particular to Mauro and his son, Matteo, who is partly responsible for the estate's enormous critical success. For the basic Barolo, the estate ages the wine in large Slavonian oak barrels, which is a classic practice in the region, and the wine is known for its delicate nose of violets and roasted fruits, and concentrated, harmonious palate.'

Mauro Molino founded this estate and today works alongside his son Matteo and daughter Martina. In 1973 Mauro graduated from enology school in Alba, and then followed that with five years of winemaking experience in Emilia Romagna. In 1979 after his father’s passing, he returned home to the family farm in La Morra and began consulting for local wineries while building up his own estate. 1982 was the first vintage from the famed family parcel in Conca dell’Annunziata, the conch-shaped parcel pictured above, and the rest is history. In 2003 Matteo joined the company, and then in 2009, Matteo’s sister also joined the gang. Today they manage approximately 12 hectares of vineyards, 50% dedicated to Nebbiolo for Barolo, and the rest mostly Barbera, and Dolcetto. This estate practices organic viticulture.

Made of 100% Dolcetto from vineyards in Dogliani which are rich in calcaerous clay, the vines are about 20-years-old. Maceration on the skins in temperature controlled steel tanks for 4 days, then vinified and aged in stainless steel tanks to keep this red fresh and juicy. Only 600 cases produced. Offering a nose rich is red fruits and minerality, the palate in juicy and lifted. Silky tannins give way to a refreshing acidity, providing a wine of sheer and simple delight! Serve with simple meals, pizza, panini, or even with a slight chill in summer around the BBQ.
