- Excellent vintage
For lovers of traditionally-crafted, 'Burgundian' styled Barolo's, the commune of Castiglione Falletto is paydirt and Mauro Mascarello's 'Monprivato' remains for many its purest and most regal expression. From a single Cru owned by the Mascarello family for generations, it has been exclusively made as a single vineyard wine since 1970 and leaves nothing to the imagination: Perfectly pitched, it is a wine that seduces with its intense rosewater perfume and fine, porcelain-like structure making it oh so drinkable yet will reward the patient. Absolutely stunning.
Mauro makes some of the most compelling, traditional wines in Piedmont.
Intensely fragrant, this offers enticing scents of woodland berry, violet, rose, aromatic herb and new leather. Elegantly structured, the linear palate is all about finesse, delivering red cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and licorice framed in firm refined tannins. Drink 2022–2032.
