Bartolo Mascarello

Cantine M. Mascarello (Michelle Mascarello)

Nebbiolo d'Alba 2004

Uplifting nose, aetheric, airy, with light cherry, wilted flowers, dusty cupboard. A faint hint of moist earth, and some kirsch in the background. So fresh, so pure, so youthful!
Pure & full of energy on the palate, light yet with juicy, crunchy tannins. Amazing how firm they still are. There’s just enough filling in the tannin-acidity frame to avoid being too austere, making it poised, ascetic and really refined.
An amazing wine!

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2003

Time Tested

03 was historically hot & dry. Did Monprivato succeed despite these conditions?

DAY 1
Served the wine with the Vinloq System which allows nitrogen to be pulled into the bottle with pouring
👀Brown/orange mixed with red
👃Cherries, tobacco, tar & roses. Some stewed/dried fruit
👅Mature. Florals and fruit are present. Light. Could use more acid. Easy to drink. Balanced

Remaining wine Slow Decanted in my fridge

DAY 10
Nice aged notes. Savory. Okay precision. Tannins are good. Kept improving in the glass

DAY 17
👃Classic & beautiful with aged notes. Finally what I was hoping for👍
👅Drinking well. Cherry. Significant tar. Savory

Similar on the 3 days, but the nose was most beautiful on DAY 17

The pedigree was apparent here in this lovely barolo despite the vintage conditions. Balance was retained with enough precision to allow the Mascarello Monprivato personality to come through👏

Mascarello Barolo Nebbiolo 1958

A broad expansive nose- plums and roses and some soft notes of orange peel and tea. Obviously coming from its age but quite fruit forward. On the palate sweetness on the edges and a blast of quite shrill acidity. Really good stuff. Yum — 4 months ago

San Giorgio Alto Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2015

N: smashed strawberries, tobacco, licorice, mascarello cherries, dirt,
P: Nice tannic grip, Black cherries, lots of earth, a buoyant frame, definitely concrete and old fourdes. I’m so glad to have found this. As Louis/Dressner says, if you know all the grapes they grow, you’re probably a master of wine.

A wonderful wine from the revered Bartolo Mascarello. Dark fruits and toasty oak, vanilla and tobacco balances well with low tannin and medium acidity. Medium finish with medium+ body. — 3 months ago
