Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"Medium amber-tinged red. Highly nuanced nose combines plum, marzipan, leather, flowers, spun sugar and nutty oak. Concentrated, juicy and bright, with lovely sweetness buffered by firm but well-integrated acidity. Gripping and tightly wound; in fact, this quickly went into a shell in the glass. But this perfectly combines the sweetness of the 2000 and the structure of the 1999...93." IWC 12/04

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. 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.

2001 Bartolo Mascarello – very laid back nose at first revealing only wet stones and juicy plums but with airing developes bright red fruits and a bit of apple skin before turning darker and revealing some blackberry liquor, dried herbs, and cherry pie spice – real sweetness on entry with tons of licorice and pumice with notes of leather and mulling spices supporting the red berry fruit, just a touch disjointed but showing great promise

Musky notes on the nose are joined by subtle notes of seashells, mineral water, and light notes of asian spices and jam. In the mouth this is lovely and fresh with a bright feel and very fine tannins. Very fine notes of bitter cherry and rosehips in the mouth with subtle herb seed/coriander notes adding complexity. Finishes lean and sinewy with sneaky length.

Tight structured wine. Black fruit, heavy tannins. Would like to try it again but will not buy more

Bartolo Mascarello's wines shine in even the most paltry of years. Here add to the fact that this vintage is brilliant and you'll be moved to tears if you can hang on to this baby for another decade or more.
