Mascarello/Bartolo Barolo 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"Gorgeous, exotic nose, with plums, prunes, cedar and mushrooms. Full-bodied and hedonistic, with loads of ripe fruit and spices underneath. Long and velvety. This is magnificent. The maestro of classic Barolos pulls out all the stops...95." WS 2/05.

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.

we knew we were drinking this young, so we gave it about 6 hours of decanting, with some sips along the way. Nose of bright berry fruit, nice acidity, tea, spices, plum compote, more strawberries, and red licorice. It became more integrated by the time we were ready to drink it, but it was still very tight, and only starting to show its dimension and class. Needs a lot more time, special juice here.

Gorgeous, exotic nose, with plums, prunes, cedar and mushrooms. Full-bodied and hedonistic, with loads of ripe fruit and spices underneath. Long and velvety. This is magnificent. The maestro of classic Barolos pulls out all the stops. Best after 2008... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2000 Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 750ml

A wonderfully balanced Barolo that is redolent of earth, truffles, berries and spice. Aged in large old barrels and made in such a traditional style that you should either save this for decades or drink with a good decanting and earth-driven fare.
