Barbera d'Alba Codana Guiseppe Mascarello 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and earthy on the nose with dried rose petals, a bit composty with a fresh, minty, woodsy tone and a touch of fennel pollen. On entry this shows great freshness but it looses a bit of focus on the mid-palate. The crisp tannins and bracing acids give this a slightly lean feel that helps to frame the nicely pure fruit flavors on the mid-palate. The fruit has the nervous edge of barely ripe fruit, red raspberry here, but the structure seems to be dominant here and those tannins drive the moderately long, savory finish. 89pts

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.
