Power, elegance, timelessness. Fear not, scaredy-cat, this is accessible and ready to drink.
Novello has been occupied by the Barbarians, Hungarians, Spanish soldiers and Napoleon's troops. It even boasts the remains of a Benedictine Abbey. It's also the home of Massimo Rattalino's vines which makes his Barolo wine. This tiny area in the southern part of Piedmont conjures up a wine that exudes power, elegance and time - does this make you nervous? Fear not, Massimo's interpretation of Barolo is easily approachable and ready to drink now.
Land is land. Wine is wine. Massimo's wines argue otherwise. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Alba, lies Massimo Rattalino's small vineyard in the recognised UNESCO World Heritage site, Barbaresco. Prudent and passionate for this legendary land, Massimo looks after his vineyards with the utmost care, and is guided by a respect for tradition.
