About

Massimo Benevelli is a winemaker beyond his years, possessing an old-world soul with a fresh outlook. He exudes a quiet and unassuming nature, speaking only when necessary with purpose and clarity. His Langhe Nebbiolo, Bricco Ravera Barbera, and Monforte Ravera Barolo each possess the same qualities as their creator. They are an honest reflection of Massimo and his winemaking philosophy.

These wines do not rely on gimmicks or overbearing oak. Instead, they embody the terroir of Monforte and the distinct characteristics of each vintage. Massimo's approach is one of authenticity, refusing to bend his wines to any particular style or trend. They are simply themselves, an honest reflection of the man who crafted them.

Tasting Notes

Massimo Benevelli’s 2017 Barolos are powerhouses. These firm, classically built Barolos convey all the power and tannic heft of Monforte d’Alba. Readers should plan on being patient, as the 2017s are real bruisers.

The 2017 Barolo Mosconi captures all the darkness, power and breadth this site is so well known for. Black cherry, plum, gravel, dried herbs and licorice infuse the 2017 with shades of nuance. This potent, strapping Barolo needs a few years in bottle to soften, although it is pretty alluring today.

Dried flower, mint, cherry and blackberry, some biscuit spices too. Full-bodied, lavish ironstone tannin, a little liquorice and hazelnut, fresh acidity, strawberry and spice, and a firm dry finish of excellent length. Plenty of chew and power here, and will need some time to come around.
