Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Giuseppe Mascarello, Barolo, Villero, 2016

A touch of earth and mushroom initially on the nose but with air resplendent summer strawberry fruit start to glimmer through. Bright but quite gentle to begin with, this grows gradually in stature in the glass. Floral and velvety, this has an initial elegance that belies its eventual complexity. This feels more grounded, deeper and overall more complete than ever before, a nice structure giving direction to the typically “Villero” aromatics. A large south-west facing vineyard within the Castiglione Falleto commune where the soils can vary a lot. By and large it is clay dominant. However Mascarello have a particularly sandy parcel, giving the resulting wine a tendency towards softness and floral fruit. Aged for 36 months in large oak vats.

Giuseppe Mascarello

Giuseppe Mascarello

Giuseppe Mascarello is truly one of the great wines estates in the world. Their fabulous vineyard holdings, above all a sizeable 6.25ha of the legendary Monprivato vineyard, and a gentle, traditional approach to making wine result in some of the most ethereal, distinctive and sought-after wines in the world. The Mascarello family have been running their estate since the late 1800s. In 1980 current owner Mauro Mascarello took over from his father and has since seen the estate’s stock rise considerably amongst wine lovers globally and with his son Giuseppe and daughter Elena now alongside him, the domaine’s future looks bright. The wines are fermented with wild yeasts and are aged in large old wooden casks for several years before bottling without filtration.
