Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 1996

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Damn this is angry, the nose is smoky and offers crisp limestone notes and tar but not much else. Cool and crisp on entry with a taut layered feel to the deep, black fruit. Lots of tough tannins today, really showing it's masculine strucutre that actually gets more aggressivein the glass. This finish offers some nice minerality but hands off for now. Based on previuos experiences this should be great but not today. 2013-2030

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.
