Estate Notes

Mascarello's 2008 Barolo was rated No.6 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines for 2013. It also won top marks from Italy’s most prestigious reviewer, Gambero Rosso, who gave it the famous Tre Bicchiere (3 glasses) award. It is made for the long-haul and your patience will be rewarded.

Mascarello's Monprivato has been one of Piedmont’s benchmark wines for decades, and also one of its best relative values.


"The 2008 Barolo Monprivato is understated, classy and very pretty. It comes across as seamless and pure, although it will be quite a few years before the wine is ready. The 2008 is mostly remarkable for its textural finesse and sheer delicateness. Crushed flowers, spices and licorice wrap around the eternal finish. I expect the 2008 will firm up once it is in bottle, but if this sneak preview is any indication, the wine is shaping up beautifully."

“Fashions and trends never affect the style of wines from Mauro and Guiseppe….an estate that has embodied the Langhe tradition since the late 19th century not just from Barolo but also Barbera and Dolcetto. Apparently subtle, rarified right from the colour and at times surprising in their aromatics, they travel through time as few other wines, frequently offering unforgettable experiences to wine lovers with patience.” Gambero Rosso, Italian Wines, 2012
