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.

Big dried fruits on the nose, dried raspberry, sandalwood, cardamom, incense, and tobacco, all freshly presented and very precise – Super bright and focused in the mouth with a core of vibrant raspberry, nettle, and rosehip tinged fruit. There is a nice touch of green peach on the backend acids and the finish closes up fairly quickly though there is a nice echo of that green tone again accenting the big pop of fruit on the final. This is starting to close down a bit but it shows exceptional balance. 94pts

Arugula, sandy and almost saline soil tones with a touch of camphor. In the mouth this is exceptionally vibrant with a spine of acidity that slices through the herbal and rainier cherry fruit that reveals edges of limestone and tarry tobacco. The fruit has brilliant purity and freshness and an elegance that is tough to match in Barolo. A great 2004. 2014-2030 94pts

Traditional Barolo with a focus that's seldom matched by most producers in Piedmont. You'll find aromas of rose petals, red currants and red cherries. A structured and balanced red wine to withstand decades of age - especially in this large format.

From a very traditional producer and a superb vintage comes this stunning Barolo. The 6 hectare Monprivato vineyard is widely considered to be the Piedmontese eqiuvalent of a Grand Cru. The impressive skill of fascinating winemaker, Mauro Mascarello, is demonstrated in this bottle.

Good medium red. Sexy, wild aromas and flavors of strawberry, mocha, coffee and minerals. Intensely flavored, fat and sweet, perhaps more concentrated and voluminous than the regular Monprivato as this is 100% from the michet clone, which typically... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2004 Mascarello, Giuseppe Barolo Riserva Monprivato Ca dMorisso 750ml

Mascarello's 2004 Barolo Monprivato is an explosive wine with an almost Pinot-like expression of purity in its fruit. This round, sweet Barolo is extremely primary at this stage, with tons of dense fruit that almost cover the wine's tannins completely. Subtle overtones of roses and tar develop in the glass, rounding out this majestic wine. Monprivato is one of the world's very finest values in collectible, age-worthy wine, and the 2004 is another classic in the making. I was blown away by this wine's sheer balance and harmony, both of which are remarkable considering the wine's age. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034. Medium red with some amber at the rim. Complex, soil-inflected nose offers strawberry, dried flowers, minerals, licorice, sage and porcini mushroom. Suave and sweet in the mouth, like a maturing Burgundy, with highly perfumed flavors of strawberry, coffee, mocha and minerals framed by a surprising spine of acidity. The most complex of these 2004s today by a wide margin, this wine also seemed to grow fresher with aeration. Finishes juicy and firmly tannic but not hard, although I couldn't help thinking that the tannins of the 2001 version were riper. Raspberry, citrus fruit and sandalwood aromas, with hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, with silky tannins. Soft and subtle, with pretty fruit. This is like a fine, old-style Burgundy. Very approachable now. Best after 2011. -JS

Good medium red. Sexy wild aromas and flavors of strawberry mocha coffee and minerals. Intensely flavored fat and sweet perhaps more concentrated and voluminous than the "regular" Monprivato as this is 100% from the michet clone which typically produces smaller berries. There s an almost flinty smoky minerality to the lush flavors of wild red berries. Finishes long round and full with layered thoroughly ripe tannins. I would not be at all surprised if this merited a 95-point score eigh

The 2004 Barolo Riserva Monprivato Ca d Morissio is totally seamless and beautiful. It possesses gorgeous textural richness and finesse with virtually no perception of tannin. Rose petals flowers raspberries and mint come alive in the glass but it is the wine s subtle yet insistent chalky minerality that is the thread that holds the wine together. This is a hugely impressive Barolo with a bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034. 96+ -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
