Light brickish red in the glass. An exceptional expression of this old world style.

In a difficult phase right now ? For sure not in balance and slightly disappointing.

G Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 2011. Drunk over two nights without decanting. Light garnet red with watery rim. Very closed the first day with notes of unripe cherry, spices and finishing with tobacco leaf. In the mouth it was almost weightless with very lean structure, medium acidity and tannins. The second night the wine gained in weight, structure and depth. It showed similar notes with the addition of dried raspberries, rose petals, liqorice and dusty minerals. The tannins were more gripping but still supported by good acidity. While the second night I enjoyed it I am not sure this is worth the price tag or if I should wait and taste it again later on to have a better experience.

Very light in color, almost like a young Pinot Noir. This is a very reserved and elegant Barolo, with fine tannins and subtle flavors of cherries and tar.

Гранат. Интенсивность средняя плюс. Сладкие ягоды, лес, шелковые танины. Молчать о вине. В карту
