Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Langhe Freisa Toetto 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pretty on the nose with floral and citrus rind top notes over a slightly gummy (chichlets) hard and estery core of fruit. Medium bodied on the palate with a nice focused feel to the slight stemmy, herbal tinged and barely ripe fruit flavors. The tannins are a bit abrasive giving the fruit a bit of a pomegranate seed quality that carries through onto the medium length finish. 87pts

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.

A touch dank and earthy on the nose with a spicy tone, some heat and gamy animal notes. Round with sweet fruit in the mouth, fine austere tannins support the sour red berry fruit and lead to a long finish which is a touch drying. 86pts
