Editorial Reviews for Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato
This offers up fine floral, herb and leather tones on the nose over a pool of sweetness yet does not offer up particularly overt fruit. The fruit comes off in background notes of roasted plum and apricot glaze with the roasted character being enhanced by the notes of melting asphalt that develop. Big and slightly chewy in the mouth, this lacks a bit of presence on the mid-palate. Bright and refreshing acids but without the crisp layering of the 1989 even a touch hot. Good length here but a bit hot on the finish as well though the sweet fruit does a good job of concealing some of the heat. This struck me as just a bit Grenache like with it's big ball of sweet fruit that is just a touch hollow. Good but not compelling and drinking well at this point. I would opt for drinking these sooner rather than later as while the flavors might show some positive evolution the lose of the fruit will continue to throw the balance off here and highlight the elevated alcohol. 91pts.
