Mascarello Bartolo Freisa Nebbiolata 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A Nebbiolata style wine passed on the Nebbiolo gross lees, which gives this a little more tannin and a little more sugar for the second fermentation. A little stinky and earthy on the nose which shows notes of thistle, wild berry fruit, and a little mushroom. there's a nice little bit of fizz here even if this had been opened earlier, with lovely clean mineral edged fruit, that shows a smear of strawberry and tart cherry fruit. Very long and perfumed in the mouth with a red floral note, just a hint of pepperiness on the modest finish. Just a lot of fun, chill this a bit and drink it with salami this summer for an irritable Piedmontese experience. 90pts

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.

A dark ruby red color. The nose is vibrant with strawberry and cherries, olives and fall leaves. On the palate a zippy acidity takes center stage and carries cherry, cranberry fruit and earthy oak through the bitter finish that begs you to take another bite. An amazing food pairing wine.
