Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 1985

Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello:
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.

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.

What a brilliant showing for this wine. Classic slow to get going Bartolo on the nose with dried herbs, and dusty cellar floor out of the gate then a bit of waxy lipstick and dusty red pez candies gain intensity before being supplanted by nuanced and layers notes of beef broth, old bones, dried wood tones, sour cherry and citrus zest. In the mouth this was fresh and oh so elegant richly endowed with soft tannins and scintillatingly pure fruit. There is a classic telltale note of austerity here which may turn some off but the juicy cranberry tinged fruits are so filled with notes of spice, earth and mineral that it is impossible to resist. A brilliant showing for this wine. 95pts
