Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 1971

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Mature but pristine. Evolved and really nuanced if a touch too delicate. Lacks the precision of the 1970 offering a softer palate feel with a bit more roasted character. Still excellent and a treat. Good Bye Manuel.

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.

Mute on the nose with subtle notes of dried raspberry, sheepskin, dusty, stony soil and beefy, saddle leather tones. This gained slowly but surely throughout the evening and was improved by the end of the night but was sadly finished. On the palate this was elegant and velvety with lovely balance that lent the mouthfeel a broad, yet shallow feel. There is a touch of cherry cough medicine floating across the midpalate and leading to the finish which is a touch short. Again this showed solid improvement through the evening and actually looks to have additional positive development in bottle. 2009-2017 91pts
