Giuseppe Mascarello E Figlio Barolo Monprivato 2008
"The 2008 Barolo Monprivato is understated, classy and very pretty. It comes across as seamless and pure, although it will be quite a few years before the wine is ready. The 2008 is mostly remarkable for its textural finesse and sheer delicateness. Crushed flowers, spices and licorice wrap around the eternal finish. I expect the 2008 will firm up once it is in bottle, but if this sneak preview is any indication, the wine is shaping up beautifully. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038....93-95+" WA 04/12
Editorial Reviews for Giuseppe Mascarello E Figlio Barolo Monprivato
Gorgeous nose filled with small strawberry and lingonberry fruit topped with intense rose petal aromatics, a little almost cinnamon sweetness, a hint of hazelnut nutella and a nice dusting of talc. Bright and decisive on entry with soft tannins gently supporting almost sweet wild strawberry fruit. There are accent notes of rust, macerated flowers, and a hint of spice here all presented in a clear and tense style built upon lovely acidity. This exhibits length, purity and elegance, with such such clarity on the palate. It is a classic in the making. 94pts

External Reviews for Giuseppe Mascarello E Figlio Barolo Monprivato
Readers will have to be especially patient with the 2008 Barolo Monprivato a wine that has none of the early appeal of other recent vintages. Still very much closed in on itself the 2008 possesses serious depth power and structure but those elements are suppressed by the recent bottling. Dried rose petals crushed berries and mint are some of the nuances that flesh out on the powerful imposing finish. I don t think the 2008 will ever match the 2006 or 2007 but it is going to be fun seeing how close it gets. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2048. 94+ -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
