Tasting Note:

Maria Teresa Mascarello is one of the region’s flagbearers for traditionally-made Barolo, taking the baton from her father Bartolo and grandfather Giulio who founded the estate in 1919. Tradition here means producing a blend that is greater than the sum of its parts. Vineyards include many choice parcels, amongst which are Rocche dell’Annunziata, San Lorenzo, Cannubi and Rue. The Barolo is aged in large used slavoninan oak cask for three years before bottling. These are some of most refined, nuanced delicately-balanced Barolos money can buy.
