Mascarello Bartolo Barbera d'Alba 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

2010 was a cooler, more classically styled year and the Barbera reflects the growing season with an elegant, austere character that is completely unlike its brother, the exuberant 2009. The flavors and aromas of the 2010 show good black stone fruit with menthol and spices, with excellent acidity and a long, clean finish that ends with a mineral burst. Drink 2013-2017.

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.

1 year in large wood A little tarry on the nose and rich with black fruit, black plums, earth, sweet medicinal notes and a little minty top note. On entry this is tight and focused with really deep fruit that tastes like old vines. A bit of alcohol intrudes early on the palate but the great acids kick in adding cut and definition leading to a long finish with attractive spice and dried floral accents.This would be great with a rare steak pick a fatty juicy cut like a skirt steak. 91pts
