RP94+

The 2009 Barolo (aged three years in botte grande and one year in bottle) opens with a crystalline, ruby color and shows extreme focus and precision. Rosehip, forest berry, wild mint, lightly toasted pine nut, dried ginger and underbrush all appear on the ever-changing bouquet. The wine is extremely finessed and silky on the close with beautiful menthol freshness at the end. In Barolo tradition, fruit was normally sourced from many vineyards. The concept of single vineyards is relatively new. In keeping with tradition, this Barolo sees fruit from the Canubbi, San Lorenzo, Rue, and Rocche di La Morra vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2035.

“The Last of the Mohicans” is a moniker that, with a playful touch of self-irony, Maria Teresa Mascarello uses to describe her winemaking philosophy. One of the most legendary cases of daughter-succeeding-father in Barolo today, this petite woman has superseded the enormity of Bartolo’s vision. Thanks to her tenacity and steadfast, she has breathed new life into the concept of “traditional” Barolo from her tiny winery at the heart of the Barolo village. If this winemaking school is experiencing a renaissance today, this is in large part thanks to her. She may be the last of the Mohicans, but she has started a new tribe.(eRobertParker)








Stubborn, Old tradition, Living legend

The wine of Bartolo Mascarello is living legend in Barolo. For three generations - Giulio - Bartolo - Maria Teresa - nothing changes in the process of wine making and philosophy. Wines are vinified in Botti(large old barrels of local oak and chestnut) without temperature control, and they never use barriques.

Barolo is made by blending of 4 great vineyards such as Cannubi, San Lorenzo, Rue and Rocche di la Morra(like a Grand Cru in Bourgogne). Freisa and Dolcetto d'Alba are produced by traditional way of "Ripasso" by Nebiolo(Nebbiolo).
