Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello:
Since time immemorial Nebbiolo has been the most highly-prized vine and the wine-growing emblem of Alba and the Langa, and when it is matched with a great wine-making terroir it is capable of expressing itself at sublime levels in wines of remarkable personality, intense bouquet, great smooth tannins, and outstanding possibilities of evolution and resistance over time.

Since time immemorial Nebbiolo has been the most highly-prized vine and the wine-growing emblem of Alba and the Langa, and when it is matched with a great wine-making terroir it is capable of expressing itself at sublime levels in wines of remarkable personality, intense bouquet, great smooth tannins, and outstanding possibilities of evolution and resistance over time. The members of the Giuseppe Mascarello family have been growing wines for more than a century and a half, first as farmers running the Manescotto estate in the village of La Morra for the marchesa Giulia Colbert Faletti di Barolo, and then on their own property since the late 1800s.

Salami, wild herbs, and wild berry fruit come together on a spicy nose that does show a light  lactic top note.  Bright, a touch chewy in the mouth, this nonetheless delivers superb precise wild berry/boysenberry fruit supported by acids that are almost salty. This offers great purity of fruit with a hint of supple power and  great acid cut on the back end, and through the long slightly smoky finish which shows a hint of grapefruit pith.  Zesty and delicious. 91pts
