Mascarello’s 2008 Barolo is a wine of extraordinary elegance. A sweet, open bouquet leads to dark red fruit, mint, spices and licorice in this pretty, nuanced Barolo. The 2008 is all about detail and understated finesse. It boasts breathtaking purity in its fruit and fabulous overall balance. A textured, finely-knit finish leaves a lasting impression. The 2008 is very classic in style. It will require considerable patience, despite its deceptively medium-bodied structure. This is another dazzling wine from Maria-Theresa Mascarello. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038.

It’s hard to go wrong with anything Maria-Theresa Mascarello is making these days. While much of the winery’s past fame was built on the sheer charm of Mascarello’s father, Bartolo, an icon in Piemonte, the wines weren’t always of the same stature. They certainly are today. At the time of my visit, Mascarello had not yet bottled her 2010 Langhe Nebiolo (note the traditional spelling with one ‘b’) as the malos progressed at snail’s pace and the wine was not ready. Readers who want to learn more might want to check out my video interview with Mascarello on www.erobertparker.com. (RobertParker.com)








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).
