Deep and dark with a masculine character revealing an earthy core of tarry, sweet fruit. Savory with tones of licorice and a touch of latex at this point. Polished and deep in the mouth with very taut, dark berry fruit. Lovely balance, superb acidity supports vibrant, intense red berry frutti di bosco fruits. Great length with a lovely bitter licorice tone on the finale. 94pts

The 2001 Barolo Riserva Ca' d' Morissio reveals extraordinary purity and elegance in its suggestions of raspberries, flowers, licorice, mint and sweet spices. Even at seven years of age it remains an incredibly primary, fresh wine with silky-textured tannins and notable finesse. Mascarello's wines often put on considerable weight in the bottle and I expect the same to happen here. The Ca' d' Morissio is made from a one-hectare plot in the Monprivato vineyard planted with a special variety of the Michet Nebbiolo clone which is known to yield especially structured, age-worthy wines. There are only about 2,500 bottles of this wine, a tiny production per hectare by any measure. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2041.

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Made only in exceptional years (the last being 1997), aged for 6 years in large<br/>slavonian oak botte a year in bottle prior to release, Ca d'Morissio captures<br/>the best fruit from the heart of the Monprivato vineyard, the pride of<br/>Castiglione Falletto. In particular Ca d'Morissio draws on the oldest Michet<br/>clone vines for its majesty. Compared with the red ribes scent of the<br/>Monprivato, Ca d'Morissio displays a profound, darker, more savoury, compact,<br/>mulberry-fruited perfume, while the palate almost defies description, such is<br/>its tightly woven, gracefully rich kernel of savoury as well as rose, raspberry<br/>flecks.
