Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2012
GUARANTEED BEST PROVENANCE:
IMPORTED FROM ITALY BY AIR AND STOCKED IN CALIFORNIA
The 2012 Mascarello Barolo is a remarkable vintage, drinkable now yet will lay down for 20+ years. Elegant complexity with sweet red cherries, a floral nose of dried rose & mint, hints of crabapple, tobacco. Tannin++, as you’d expect for a youthful vintage, but I find this is a pleasure to drink now.
Mascarello always makes their Baroli with a blend of what’s best in a given year, usually from their tiny holdings in Canubbi, San Lorenzo, Rue and Rocche di Annunziata. Everything is done by hand in the vineyards, and it is a labor of true love dating back 100 years.
Raving Mascarello fans will be happy to know that this wine has the best provenance, and flown directly from Barolo.
