A traditional variety indigenous to Piedmont, in the hands of Barolo master Mauro Mascarello, becomes a graceful, complex wine with a piercing red floral nose. Finely structured and possessing a sharp tannic edge, this wine is capable of ageing up to 10 years, but of course can be enjoyed now.

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.
