WCC St. Julien (Cafe Capriccio, Albany, NY): [Double-decanted at 2:30pm.] Leather and blackberry nose. Abrasive on the finish. Should be showing better than this.

1989 Barolo and Barbaresco Single Blind (I Trulli Restaurant, NYC): [Opened at 6pm.] Gorgeous black fruit and spice. Sweet in the mouth. A beautiful wine from a producer I had not heard of before.

WCC: Totally Blind Reds (Bob's (chezfur)): [Double decanted for about 12 hours.] Big waxy nose characteristic of young Rhone wines. In the mouth, hot alcoholic and nasty.

2001 Bruno Giacosa Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto di Serralunga d'Alba

Nebbiolo more

Rare Wine Co's Giacosa Riserva Dinner (Del Posto Restaurant, NYC): Showing some secondary aromas in the nose. Explodes in the mouth. Amazing wine! Still young and tannic but so obviously great now and for the next 30 years. May be the the greatest Le Rocche del Falletto made. This is what Giacosa is all about: power and grace. Mind blown.

WCC Barolo & Barbaresco Blind (Yono's Restaurant, Albany, NY): [Double decanted around 5pm.] Classic Barolo. Big and complex with earth, mulch mushrooms. Stunning, with a long complex finish. Really a terrific bottle of Barolo with no sign of new oak remaining. Should continue to drink well for at least another decade.

2004 Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato

Nebbiolo more

10/16/2010 - Papies wrote: 94 points

Tasting at the Cantina Mascarello in Piedmont with la Mam Mascarello. The Mama introduced this as a wine of purity, very little oak, no toasting, pure terroir. Not bad given she speaks no English and we speak no Italian. Indeed it is. Traditional to the core, and although young (wine was opened 1 hour prior our visit) it still shows wwhat is great about Barolo. Big and long with presence yet very elegant and with fine nose. This is one to look for for the future. Simply great.

    Cantina Mascarello aka Bartolo Mascarello is run by his daughter, Maria Teresa Mascarello. They make only one Barolo from 4 vineyards. Perhaps that is the wine you had?
