Thanks again to @Francesco Petroli for bringing this ringer! Too young but so great anyway.

Bartolo Mascarello was the first grower I met in Piedmont. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and stayed for hours, taking about wine, politics and local gossip. At the end of the visit, Mascarello gave us a stack of hand drawn labels, like this one. Now, many years later, these wines still provide so much pleasure. This is the 2012, young, beautiful and coming together very nicely. In 2012, the Mascarello Barolo is bright, perfumes and all grace.

Hmmmm. I know this is a great Domaine and was excited to taste this Barolo. But this 9 year old wasn’t even close to ready. Still so astringent and a relatively short finish. Also these babies are so devoid of fruit it takes a special sensitivity to appreciate them. Just not sure I have the patience to buy and wait as long as it takes.
