Mascarello Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

From an outstanding vintage, an intensely focused nose full of compact<br/>strawberry and sandalwood notes; the palate similarly so, this 'baby Barolo'<br/>combines an impressive concentration of strawberry, almost<br/>menthol flavours, poise as well as a withering charm. Especially fine<br/>with turkey and stuffing. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)

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 wonderful nose of wild flowers and strawberries is not complex but pure and penetrating. Rich and relatively powerful in the mouth with sapid acidity helping to frame absolutely lovely fruit that has a bit of a muscular quality to it but remains so juicy and fresh. Great length on the finish and really great nebbiolo. 2009-2017 90pts
