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.

From Rue e Monrobiolo vineyards, fermented in concrete, then 9 months in botte Very pretty floral violet tinged nose that picks up subtle  soil, dark fruit, and quite spicy aromas. This is  soft, rich and easy in the mouth with plenty of mulberry boysenberry fruit that shows great freshness in the mouth.  There are very present yet soft tannins here along with gentle acid support making this easy to drink with  just a touch of richness here. The finish is very fruity, in fact remarkably fruity and this is predictably quite lovely. 89pts

Darker, more muscular on the nose than the Santo Stefano with dark fruit a bit of tar, some dried strawberry, strawberry seeds and mineral notes with a touch of dried herb. In the mouth this is  juicy and moderately full bodied though remaining elegant with dark berry fruit framed by nice forest floor balsamic notes. There’s a bit of Barolo character here, with super fine tannins lending a mineral edge on the  elegant long if simple finish that is driven by some fine acidity. 91pts
