Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: The 1999... is perfect, and an effortless Three Glass champion. Deep garnet ruby, it regales the nose with exquisitely refreshing aromas of ripe fruit laced with sweet spices and dried flowers. The already well-balanced palate offers dense yet velvety tannins that make it quite irresistible. (2004)

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 superb aromatics with a layered, delicate elegant composition of sweet fruit, earth, fading spice and saffron tones. In the mouth this is silky and seamless with lovely depth and purity and plenty of really ripe fruit tannins. This really shows amazing depth on the long, complex finish. Drinking well already but with a brilliant future. 94pts

1999 produced classic wines for ageing that were deceptively restrained apon release. While still a baby this bottling has begun to reveal some of the profound aromatics Bartolo has been able to echieve while in the mouth the wine remains a lighter, femine expression of nebbiolo.
