Mascarello Dolcetto Bricco 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fresh and pure on the nose with a very tight core of soil inflected fruit. It’s almost slatey smelling. On the palate the fruit is framed by fresh, crisp tannins giving great focus to the lightly briary core that is clear and crisp with good length. 88pts

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.

Woodsy on the nose with notes of candied roses petal and geranium dominate the lean nose. The palate shows decidedly more fruit in the purple, grapy plum and of the spectrum and while this is zesty with cleansing acids it is a bit tough with tough tannins, particularly noticeable on the modest finish. 86pts
