Critic's Notes

John Gilman - View From the Cellar, 96

“In 1964, Bartolo Mascarello was still working alongside of his father, Giulio, and the two generations fashioned one of the legendary wines of the post-war era in the Langhe in this vintage. This is an utterly magical wine that perfectly captures the blended style of Barolo that the Mascarello family still champions, as the pure and sappy fruit of their Cannubi holdings are beautifully synthesized into the more serious structural elements of some of their other vineyard sources. The bouquet is utterly brilliant, soaring from the glass in a sappy blend of red and black cherries, woodsmoke, gentle notes of tar, forest floor, orange peel, oregano, a bit of dried red fruit and a topnote of heather. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and still shows marvelous mid-palate depth, with stunning focus and complexity, impeccable balance, modest tannins and a very long, vibrant and tangy finish that shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon! A beautiful wine in passionate defense of Barolo’s traditional, blended style- just like father and son Mascarello would have hoped for this great vintage! (Drink between 2011-2040)”
