Mascarello's Barolo Monprivato Riserva Ca di Morissio, 2010 is the greatest of all traditionally made Barolos on the market.
The Riserva Ca di Morissio is a 'super riserva' crafted from a a tiny parcel of Nebbiolo Michet in Monprivato, planted in the mid-1980s after being specially selected from the original 1921 plantings. It is named after Mauro Mascarello’s grandfather, Maurizio (Morissio in Piemontese dialect) who was the first generation to purchase a plot in Monprivato. It comes from a great Barolo vintage and was purchased in its original wooden case.
Mascarello's Monprivatos have been one of Piedmont’s benchmark wines for decades in a region known as the Pauillac of Piedmont.
The single vineyard Barolo Cru Monprivato is owned outright by Giuseppe Mascarello and has been a lifelong passion for Mauro. He is revered in his native Piedmont and has remained true to his tradition and beliefs. The Monprivato vineyard produces some of Italy’s greatest Barolo and is in fact made up of three sub-varieties of Nebbiolo comprising of 30% Michét, 45% Lampia and 25% Rosé.
