2008 Barolo Monprivato, Giuseppe e Figlio Mascarello, Piedmont

This is a lovely, transparent, delicate colour and has beguiling nose of crushed rose petal, red cherries and exotic spices. The palate has amazing intensity and freshness, but at this early stage you really have to think about it to understand the potential here. Mauro re-iterates the importance of the pure limestone base of this amazing single vineyard wine. Tasted alongside 2007 I would buy 2008 every time.

2008 Barolo Monprivato, Giuseppe e Figlio Mascarello, Piedmont
Giuseppe e Figlio Mascarello

The winemaking story of Mascarello started at the turn of the century when the original Giuseppe Mascarello first produced top Nebbiolo-based wines. The estate has passed from father to son ever since. Current winemaker Mauro Mascarello has lifted it to the top table of Piedmontese producers, with wines particularly prized for their clarity and precision. He uses the best grapes, from vines up to 300 years old, and takes his time to ensure nothing is rushed in the pursuit of perfection.
