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.
