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! — 18 hours ago
03 was historically hot & dry. Did Monprivato succeed despite these conditions?
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
Nice aged notes. Savory. Okay precision. Tannins are good. Kept improving in the glass
👃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👏 — 17 days ago
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. — 9 days ago
