Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 1954

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very pale red looking somewhat like a faded rose. Spicy red berry aromatics are high toned and edged with a lemon flambe twist. With air reveals a more mineraled core with soil and leather adding dimension. Muscular in the mouth with tough tannins balanced by spicy, anise tinged red berry fruit. The entry is a bit lifted by the acidity but the earthy and tarry midpalate fills out nicely and the core of sweet fruit carries through on the medium long finish. Giving all it's got tonight and my wine #2 of the night.

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.
