Mascarello Barolo Nebbiolo 1961

Quite ruby dark. A haunting, intense nose with roses, raspberry, settled wood, black tea. This is so fine and subtle and delicious but still has wonderful balance and fruit. Exceptional. Riserva — 2 months ago

I had the 71 Riserva last Saturday night and it was a massive wine that only started to be expressive after three hours.

I've been lucky enough to have the '61 twice in the last couple of weeks. It's in a really beautiful place right now. I can imagine the '71 might be a pup still

Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Hands down. Perfect Barolo in my opinion. Started to showing tertiary notes. Decades of life ahead. What a treat! — 20 days ago

Barolo Nebbiolo 1964

Gorgeously supple blue fruit. Very fresh and dynamic- hints of menthol and gnarly stuff. Pure and delicious. A great bottle. — a month ago

Monprivato Cà d'Morissio Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Thought the Voerzio was the better wine as the Mascarello was thin and not showing much out of the gates. The Cap was disappointing. Had moved the secondary and tertiary flavors which was surprising given its only a 2005. — 3 months ago

Bummer about that Cap.

Riserva Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 1961

Very pretty. Soft and pale with faded cherry, dried rose, tea like faded edges. Fruit is still lovely- very resolved and persistent. Charming. — 3 months ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Il Ritrivo in Positano. Popped and poured. Light scarlet in the glass. Thin and translucent. This starts off very quiet, offering some ripe cherries and spice. With air it gains a little bit of body and adds some nice sweet fruit but never emerges fully to show what it’s got. Compared to the A Conterno Cicala next to it, this is delicate, feminine and a bit of a surprise it didn’t have more to show. Not sure about this. Probably just needs time. — 4 days ago

Scudetto Piemonte Barbera 2010

How many age-worthy barberas are there out there?! This is certainly only. Smooth and balanced. Red fruit, lavender. It has all the goods to make for a perfect evening sipper with or without food. Wouldn’t expect anything less from this bottling. 🌟 — 2 months ago

Follow up wine to our 07 Bartolo Mascarello on Friday night. Vacuum sealed and re-stored enough to write notes today as we had friends for dinner.

The nose reveals, floral, slightly creamy, candied with hints of stewed fruits; blackberries, blueberries, black plum, dark cherries, plum, boysenberries and dark cherries. There is a little smoke here but, if they named this wine and vineyard because their is ash on the nose and palate, it wouldn’t surprise me. Soft volcanic minerals, some anise, dark rich, turned earth, vanilla, cinnamon, hints if clove, dark spice, limestone, sweet tarriness, used leather, wood shavings, light peppery notes, light mintiness with dark red, fresh & withering dark floral and violets.

The body is full. The tannins are soft, round and velvety. The structure, tension, length and balance have hit a high point but, there is 8-10 years of life ahead. ripe; blackberries, blueberries, black plum, dark cherries, plum, boysenberries and dark cherries. Some smoke, cigar ash, soft volcanic minerals, some anise, dark rich, turned earth, vanilla, cinnamon, hints of clove, very dark spice with palate heat, limestone, dry crushed rocks, dry top soil, sweet tarriness, used leather, wood shavings, light peppery notes, light mintiness with dark red, fresh & withering dark floral and violets. The acidity is round and beautiful. The finish is rich, lush, ripe, well balanced and persists a very longtime.
