Food Pairings for Bartolo Mascarello Barolo
Editorial Reviews for Bartolo Mascarello Barolo
Color similar to that of the 54 but the nose while being very perfumey lacks a bit of intensity and is marred by a bit of play-doh quality. Big and powerful with sweet fruit up front this is structurally well endowed but muted on both the nose and palate. The embossed bottling.
Slatey and smoky nose with seared cherries and roasted bones on the nose with airing adds sottobosco notes of old wood and thistle with a touch of green walnut leading to an herbal edge and a wafting topnote of woodsmoke. A classic nose. In the mouth this offers lovely integration with wonderful bottle sweetness accentuating the bright amarena cherry fruit. Surprisingly soft and well integrated acidity with nuances of coffee and tar accentuating the black, spicy character of the finish which surprisingly shortens up with airing. In fact this seemed to close up a bit with airing growing a touch tighter and less generous though perhaps that is only wichful thinking and this in fact faded but I did not get the sense that less was actually there. Another bottle that i wish I had decanting info on but for me very close to peak and quintessential Bartolo with the slight caveat that this warm vintage offers a wine with slightly lower acidity than the usually quite obvious acidity I typically find in Bartolo's wine. In this case it works brilliantly.
