Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Villero 2004, 750mL (WA92, WS92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Villero

750mL

Vintage: 2004
Region: Italy
Appellation: Barolo
Condition: bsl

WA92, WS92
Rated 92 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2004 Barolo Villero presents a light to medium-bodied expression of Nebbiolo. Silky, refined tannins support a soft core of sweet raspberries, strawberries and spices. Although the wine put on weight in the glass, this remains a relatively round, approachable wine in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2024.`Mauro Mascarello is one of the most fascinating personalities in Piedmont. He is also arguably the longest-tenured active winemaker in the Langhe, having been directly responsible for all aspects of production at his family`s estate since 1970, which makes him an invaluable resource on the traditions of the region. Today`s younger generation of high-end producers speak with great reverence about Mascarello and even more so about his father Gepin who was a legend in these parts. Mascarello was an internationally-renowned producer decades before today`s big names were even making wines under their own labels. Twenty years ago, Mascarello`s signature Barolo Monprivato was one of the most expensive Barolos on the market. Then the new-age style became dominant during the 1990s and the estate languished in perception, but not quality. In recent times Mascarello has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity which is long overdue. Prices have gone up, but the Barolo Monprivato in particular remains a steal relative to other world-class wines. Monprivato is one of the handful of Italian wines than can hold its own with the best being made anywhere in the world.`--Tasting Note by Antonio Galloni--
