Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello

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👏

Langhe Freisa 2019

Strawberries, tannin , some almond.
Delicious w a slight chill. Some get a sanguine quality. There’s no escaping Piedmontese acidity. So for fans, great.A delicious relic that’s survived thankfully. Still rustic but delish.

Ellena Barolo Nebbiolo 2015

Drinking really well. Sweet cherry, rose petals, crushed limestone minerality (not sure where that came from). Pure and on the leaner side, with nice flavor concentration and nice bright acids. Lengthy finish with some assertive but soft tannins. Nice wine to cut through rich food. — 2 months ago
