Bartolo Mascarello

The Bartolo Mascarello is now made by daughter Maria Teresa. I am hesitant to use that word as it’s more a bit of observation and gentle guidance that transpires each year in this small Spartan cellar than any sense of manufacturing.

The results speak for themselves in silky harmony that brings together components from four distinct vineyards, a rarity for any Piemontese producer’s top wine in this day and age of single vineyard bottlings, not to mention that producer’s sole Barolo.

This is among the most traditional wines produced in Piemonte,and it does a wonderful job of expressing the Nebbiolo grape in a pure, fragrant and uncommonly red-fruited way.

Bartolo Mascarello Barolo $85
