Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

To many Maria-Teresa's Barolo represents the model of great, traditionally-madeBarolo; Compared to the 2003, there's a darker hue and fuller, darker, moresensual expression of mulberry like fruit, pepped up by definite kirschhighlights on the nose. The palate is a staggering display of restraint, tinyred berried fruit, the silkiest of tannic structures, compact yet at the sametime so serene. What a joy to behold.. Best drunk from 2014.

This is classic Bartolo with bones, spice,herbs a nuance of cinnamon and lovely sweetness all framing perfectly presented gentle red fruits. In the mouth this is ridiculously rich with fresh wild cherry fruit that is incredibly vibrant with uncommon purity. Obvious this is still an infant but the balance and depth are fantastic. One of Bartolos best? 95pts

2004 is the first normal vintage I can remember in a while," says Maria Theresa Mascarello. "We were finished with our Nebbiolo harvest on the 12th of October." Her pure, finessed 2004 Barolo offers a compelling array of perfumed violets, dark cherries and baking spices with superb clarity and delineation. A weightless, ethereal Barolo, it reveals notable freshness and supple tannins on the long, finessed finish. Although I have tasted this wine many times from cask, I first encountered it from bottle at a blind tasting where it was immediately recognizable for its style, purity and class. This is the best young Barolo I have tasted here in many a year. Fans of traditional Barolo won't want to miss this superb effort. The 2004 Barolo was fermented for 20-30 days in cement. The malos progressed at an unusually slow pace and weren't finished until the following summer. The wine was aged in medium-sized casks. Readers can also look forward to promising wines in 2005, 2006 and 2007. I also had a chance to re-taste the 2003, which is a lovely Barolo for nearer-term consumption." RP

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.
