Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "The bouquet opens to plush flavors of red fruit and cherry with grilled herb, tobacco and mineral delineation. Its structure is yielding and round and the finish is ripe with soft fruit flavors. Make no mistake, it doles out complexity and an ethereal sense of balsam herb, cola and licorice that is the hallmark of this historic estate with a tiny garage winery in the town of Barolo. (ML)" 93 points Vinous "...blessed with a divine bouquet, surfeit with red cherries, crushed strawberry, decaying autumn leaves and rose petal, and later a hint of roasted chestnut and Montecristo. The palate is fresh, poised, not deep but harmonious and satin-like in texture. Elegant on the finish, not profound but so, so drinkable and delicious. (NM)"
About Bartolo Mascarello
Maria Teresa continues the family's tradition of blending Nebbiolo grapes from various vineyards to produce a wine that truly embodies the essence of the Piedmont terroir. This unique approach sets Bartolo Mascarello apart from other wineries in the region that focus on single vineyard wines. In addition to Barolo, the winery also produces limited quantities of classic Italian reds such as Dolcetto, Barbera, Freisa, and Langhe Nebbiolo.
These Italian reds are highly sought after by collectors with an appreciation for traditional Nebbiolo. They are worth the wait; as wine critic Antonio Galloni attests, Maria Teresa Mascarello has taken the estate to "a level never previously seen." Bartolo Mascarello's commitment to tradition, coupled with Maria Teresa's expert winemaking skills, make the winery a must-visit destination for wine lovers and collectors alike.
