The 2011 Barolo Parafada presents a totally different side of Serralunga in its floral, savory personality. Iron, smoke, tobacco, savory herbs and menthol open up in the glass, but it is the wine's firm tannins and overall sense of blossoming structure that stand out above all else. While the Margheria is a bit more overt in style, the Parafada showcases the floral/savory/mineral aspects of Serralunga. Drink 2018-2031.

Massolino's 2011 Barolo Parafada does a great job of portraying the brawny and muscular side of Serralunga d'Alba. But it does so with an elegant touch. Thick tannins wrap over the palate and the wine boasts very long persistence that is carried forward in thick waves of plump fruit and spice. Sweet blackberry, clove and cinnamon appears on the close. Drink 2017-2035.
