54 days on the skin Pale and delicate in color, surprisingly so. This is superbly focused on the nose with high toned floral peony and iris notes, gorgeous fruit, precise red currant and small lingonberry aromas framed with something delicately sweet, and bay leaf like. Superbly focused in the mouth, this has fabulous purity and is precise and elegant with this delicate layering of flavors. Fresh red fruit, peach skin, so bright and pure with penetrating aromas on the long finish. The tannins here are so precise, fresh, and ripe, there's great power here but you can taste right through this to the base of soil tones Deceptively small in the mouth, this is packed with such flavor that it is a bit of a shock. Long on the finish with some hint of red plums, this is fabulous. 95pts

Intense raspberry fruit, ripe with woodsy edges and mineral, tea, and tobacco highlights topped with a touch of red rose petals all greet the nose. Wide open, and a bit soft on entry then full of intriguing rosehip and raspberry fruit with a little apple skins note and hints of sandalwood on the palate. The tannins here are pretty ripe, but certainly prominent right through the slightly austere finish which shows some alcohol that is just barely perceptible. This has height and perfume in the mouth that is unusual for the vintage, with a fresh and traditional feel. 93pts

An abundance of liquory red fruit powers the sweet aromatics, which emerge over a base of dusty white earth with hints of dried rose petal, juniper, mint, salami and old barrel. Gorgeous balance and scale in the mouth is supported by super fine tannins and bright acids that lend lovely purity. The red-fruited, lingonberry-rich mid-palate sees a huge follow through to a wonderful rose hip finish. The only rub might be its small scale, but this is so layered and long that it is truly the essence of Barolo. 94pts

Very floral, nuanced roasted chestnut tones, a bit of chamomile and leather, nice fruit, a touch waxy, very cranberry, wild raspberry fresh. A bit soft up front, very ripe tannins up front then finds its focus on the mid-palate with earthy, slight seedy, dried floral tones, some tea notes, lightly liquory raspberry fruit on the backend. Nice finish, lots of savory, leathery notes on finish, a powerful wine. (90-92pts)

AWE blind tasting - campfire, then sweet herbs, a touch of bacon, some cola, weeds, very fluid in the mouth, softish tannins, some sweetness but not much else, not cloying but very little flavor at this stage. 82-83

Tight structured wine. Black fruit, heavy tannins. Would like to try it again but will not buy more

we knew we were drinking this young, so we gave it about 6 hours of decanting, with some sips along the way. Nose of bright berry fruit, nice acidity, tea, spices, plum compote, more strawberries, and red licorice. It became more integrated by the time we were ready to drink it, but it was still very tight, and only starting to show its dimension and class. Needs a lot more time, special juice here.

According to a sommelier at Cru, in a vertical tasting, drinking better than the '97; the '95 is weak

5/2009, ein großartiger Wein, in perfekter Balance zwischen weichen Tanninen, pflaumigem Background, Waldbodenaromen, Lakritze und einer winzigen Teerspur. Ungewöhnlich rund, fast feminin im Abgang, ungewöhnlich dunkle Farbe. Neben einem Icardi Barbaresco 2000 von einem "Bordeauxspezialisten" auf Grund der Komplexität als großer Bordeaux missinterpretiert. I love it!

The 1996 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo was, at first, very expressive on the nose but shut down quickly in the glass. Aromas of tar, roasted nuts, ripe strawberry and roses wafted up from the glass as if to tempt us and then sink our expectations as this wine suddenly turned off. The palate showed a tight structure as rose water and light cherry showed through. The finish was short with dried red fruit and hints of tobacco. This bottle needs more time, but I fear that it may never show the soft, rich, dried fruit of an aged Barolo. (90 points)

popped and poured. color was initially pale red, with orange bricking to the rim. darkened considerably as the night went on. Initial mustiness on the nose blew off. Nose was classic barolo- roses, tea, cherries and slightly decaying leaves- waves upon wave. The palate was fantastically alive with a warm velvet texture, pure cherry fruit with considerable elegance and amazing persistence. awesome wine.

Bartolo Mascarello's wines shine in even the most paltry of years. Here add to the fact that this vintage is brilliant and you'll be moved to tears if you can hang on to this baby for another decade or more.

A wonderfully balanced Barolo that is redolent of earth, truffles, berries and spice. Aged in large old barrels and made in such a traditional style that you should either save this for decades or drink with a good decanting and earth-driven fare.

Vintage: 2000 01/17/2009

Gorgeous, exotic nose, with plums, prunes, cedar and mushrooms. Full-bodied and hedonistic, with loads of ripe fruit and spices underneath. Long and velvety. This is magnificent. The maestro of classic Barolos pulls out all the stops. Best after 2008... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2000 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 750ml

Vintage: 1999 07/12/2007

1999 produced classic wines for ageing that were deceptively restrained apon release. While still a baby this bottling has begun to reveal some of the profound aromatics Bartolo has been able to echieve while in the mouth the wine remains a lighter, femine expression of nebbiolo.

Unusually accessible for such a young wine from this staunch traditionalist. Redolent of tea leaves, plum and star anise.

Vintage: 1997 07/12/2007

Bartolo's persistence with the traditional technique of blending wine from different vineyards works exceptionally well in vintages of extremes such as 1997. One of the wines of the vintage this offering is certainly marked by the opulence of the year but retains a vibrancy rarely found in 1997.

Winemaker's Notes:

"...This is the best young Barolo I have tasted here in many a year. Fans of traditional Barolo won’t want to miss this superb effort. The 2004 Barolo was fermented for 20-30 days in cement. The malos progressed at an unusually slow pace and weren’t finished until the following summer. The wine was aged in medium-sized casks. Readers can also look forward to promising wines in 2005, 2006 and 2007. I also had a chance to re-taste the 2003, which is a lovely Barolo for nearer-term consumption...95." WA 12/07
