Editorial Reviews for Mascarello Bartolo Barolo
A real shift in color with this bottle, still dark and young. The nose is reticent slowly revealing talc and mint over earthy fruit that is slightly rubbery. Big and rich on entry with lots of soft tannins and perfectly integrated acidity anhancing the bright red fruit up front. Rounds out across the midpalate with earthy and mineral notes that lead to a long finish that is juicy and offers great mineral cut yet is cut short by the structure. This wine will benefit from an additional 2- 5 years of bottle age to round out those final rough edges.
The nose here is quite restrained and subtle at first with nothing particular jumping out. This is very structured and tight in the mouth with typical highish acidity and a tarry finish with lots of licorice tones. Lithe and elegant in the mouth showing a bit of greeness with notes of seaweed and green cardamom. The finish finally hints at some incipient sweetness and slowly adds some pronounced sweet cherry fruit tones but the wine remains coy and unyeilding. A baby in need og another 5 years before revisiting but balanced and appearantly with the stuffing to improve.
