Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 1970

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Ok so now we're going on 11:30 and need another bottle so this is popped and poured. A first a lovely nose with oysershells and cherry pits, warn wood, then building a sweetness on the nose. Structurally fairly resolved though absolute mouthfilling with a richness yet such balance that the wine remains silky in the mouth. great depth of fruit with a lovely bitter nuance offering contrast. really adds swetness in the mouth as well. This is perhaps the most espressive wine of the evening and the one wine that we caught at precisely the right time to drink this bottle. Exceptionally transparent and continuously evolving in the glass moving from strength to strength. fabulous.

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.
