    April 14, 2019 - Comparative Tasting of B. Mascarello Barolo and G. Mascarello Barolo Monprivato (Dig Wines, San Francisco): Beautiful aromas of spice and red fruit with early secondary perfume. Gorgeous balance and poise, spherical feel, great acidity, a consistent vein of soil, uplifting citric note, and a roundly tannic finish that gives it outstanding grip at the end. Long, gently fading finish laced with soil. My favorite wine of the entire tasting. Both powerful and refined, and just beginning to display its incipient complexity. Its superb balance is such that it should impress at every point of its long evolution. A treat to taste, and I have had this reaction every time.

    March 31, 2019 - 97+. You need to drink this alone, over 3 days, but better do so from 2022. The bouquet is floral, fruity, mineral, savory (starting 2nd day) and sweetly spicy. It ripples gently yet surely on one's palate, w/ effortless concentration, finishes long and gentle. no hurry. Great wine indeed.

    Well the wine could be shut downhe wine should be shut down now as fellow cellartrackers mentioned. But in preparation for this tasting, I took the bottle from wine chamber last september and it sit thru winter heating with me, so it should be softer than your normal bottle.

    Also, my comlaint besides the fact that i didn't grab more bottles when it's available twice as "cheap“ as today : the cork is way too short! The wine can live 50 years for sure, most not likely the same for the cork.

    December 28, 2018 - Amazing as always. Deep color, incredibly aromatic nose. Very fine and elegant. Red fruit, tea, flowers, subtle spice. Very long finish. So complex and rich. Just a stunner. Buy buy buy.

    August 21, 2018 - Dirt cheap (relatively) on a restaurant list so had to try it. This is pretty shut down at the moment I would say but it was enjoyable and you can see the potential greatness. Perfect wine? Not at this stage at least. The fruit is plentiful but lacks delineation and the acidity, while sufficient, doesn't have the underlying cut that I have seen in other vintages of Mascarello. There also was some backend heat which I didn't love. Tasted over two bottles with short decant.

    I have a feeling it's just in a dumb phase but it's nowhere near as complete as the 2008 version of this wine currently. In the long run it might win out but that seems like a ways off at the moment. In fact if you are going to drink something now, I think 2008/09/11/12 are all better options. Wait minimum 10 years if you own this.

    May 4, 2018 - Very good despite it s early days. Clear balsamic notes with powerfull and dark cherry. Flowers, truffle and tobacco keep coming up from the glass.
    Love it. Perfect wine even at this young stage.
