Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 1964

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

The nose here started out with notes of old parchment and chicken base over deep soil tones and while the intensity of the nose remained low it did freshen up adding cherry fendant notes and some bitter coffee and medicinal notes. This didn't resonate with me nearly as much as it did with the rest of the table and while the palate was very soft and integrated with dark cocoa and fading prune fruit fanning across the palate the wine felt much like the &8 Giacosa Rionda to me with cracke developing across the midpalate and the finish which none-the-less remains very long and distinguished for it's purity of fruit. An elegant and balanced bottle past peak and slowly fading away.

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.
