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.

Insecticide and chemical aromas on the nose which is all green and herbal. In the mouth this is soft and anonymous with tart acids and nothing of interest. 60pts

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. - Robert Parker 96+ Points ** SOLD OUT **
