  • You can buy 2015 California Cabernet if you look around, I'm sure.  ... ... give it some thought.Monprivato is one of the few wines I think is worth three figures; again, it's a monopole and I would be happy to support Mauro Mascarello's perfectionism at G.

  • My wine of the year was undoubtedly the 1971 Mascarello Monprivato with the 1970 Vega Sicilia Unico a close second, but what else is new?Obviously I've been drinking and tasting lots of Chianti this year, with a few notable standouts: 2010 Fattoria di Vegi Chianti Classico Riserva, 2013 Montefioralle Chianti Classico Riserva, and while not Chian...

It's big, so they produce a fair bit, and though they have some non-native grapes as well as Dolcetto and Barbera, the vast majority is nebbiolo for Barolo.  When we tasted the Barolo wines, the first aroma out of the bottle ...

Ca d'Morrissio, the Monprivato Riserva effectively, was also pretty damn great.  Sure, it'll continue to improve, and '08 is a harder vintage than '06 (but not probably harder than '10), and maybe I just don't find young Barolo's "faults" so troubling.  But, yeah...

  • For about $125 or so, you can probably find a Giuseppe Mascarello Monprivato from 2011.  And it'll be great right now, because that's kind of how 2011 is.  On the whole, I don't really like this exercise because I prefer to buy a wine, hold it for a while, then drink it, unless I can score something really cool that someone aged for me.  But tha...
