Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Santo Stefano di Perno 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark slightly minty and slightly herbal carob tinged wild raspberry fruit greets the nose followed by deep rosepetals and a little thistle. Powerful and dry on entry with superb acidity supporting raspberry fruit with a hint of red plum, pomegranate , and some rust notes on the transparent mid-palate. The finish is long, powerful and austere with a nice herb tinged spiciness to it. There might be a touch of alcohol showing on the finish but this is exceptionally well balanced and complete. 94pts

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.
