Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 2006
Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Compared to their 2.5ha Monforte vineyard Santo Stefano di Perno, this Castiglione Falletto gem is more 'campo sportivo' than vineyard, given its size at 6.20ha. It was cropped at 30hl/ha in 2006 giving a beautifully ethereal, silflike wine that gives you 'harmony' in buckets. Selected yeast & stainless-steel vinifcation (since the late '90s) has surely helped frame the bright, detailed strawberry-like fruit, with its brilliant racy quality & calcareous finesse. Such lines!(tasted before September 2010's bottling). <br/><strong>(David Berry Green - BBR Buyer)</strong>
External Reviews for Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato
An elegant style, with a hint of wild herbs giving way to strawberry, eucalyptus, licorice and mineral. Though structured, this is deftly balanced, with a mouthwatering finish and a fine, savory aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2030.
Mascarelloandrsquo;s 2006 Barolo Monprivato is incredibly primary at this stage. The 2006 is an explosive Monprivato endowed with layers of ripe red fruit backed up by firm, muscular tannins that speak with great eloquence. I expect the 2006 to go through a period of stubbornness andmdash; as it often does andmdash; but it should begin to show well at around age ten or so. From time to time, the wine shows glimpses of its nobility. The 2006 is shaping up to be a profound Monprivato. The only thing it needs is time. This is a fabulous effort from Mascarello. Anticipated maturity: 2016andndash;2036.
