2001 Barolo, Monprivato, Mauro Mascarello, Castiglione Falleto, Piedmont
Still relatively pale in colour. The fragrant, complex nose is closed at first but after about 10 minutes reveals red and black fruits plus violets and a hint of rose. Great intensity of refined, sweet fruit is present on the palate. This has a beautiful, silky texture, flowing and seamless on the palate. Good tannins but they are absolutely in tune with the fruit with a long, totally balanced finish. There is almost a lacy quality and restraint to this wine, despite its undeniable power. This outstanding wine is a masterclass in traditional Barolo and comes with the highest recommendation to buy.
