Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

While vintage 2004 was darker and fulsome, Maria Teresa's 2005 lifts the soul<br/>with a spirited spicy red fruit perfume, a delicate, gentle, velvety cherry<br/>stone palate and a sublime quality that perhaps only the Cantina Mascarello<br/>Bartolo can muster. Getting ahead of the Oct 10th rain seemed key to performing<br/>well in 2005, after what was a relatively mild summer. This is perhaps an apt<br/>advertisement for the benefits of blending vineyards together, four into one; a<br/>philosophy the Cantina holds dear. An Englishman's Barolo? It's certainly<br/>sings of finesse. Drinking till 2020, along with lamb (Maria Teresa's favourite<br/>meat). <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)

AWE blind tasting - campfire, then sweet herbs, a touch of bacon, some cola, weeds, very fluid in the mouth, softish tannins, some sweetness but not much else, not cloying but very little flavor at this stage. 82-83
