    August 9, 2018 - Small vintage, and it shows. Wine was lovely, perfumed with menthol, but a little tired and out of balance. Nice expression of Monprivato, of which it has all the characteristics, but not the best example of how much it can give.

    April 13, 2018 - Notes from memory. Served cool maybe too cold. Shy nose without depth or much complexity but also from a relatively poor vintage. Taste is slightly metallic but this is just a detractor. Otherwise in good shape and likeable.

    June 19, 2016 - While this wine has a solid nose of cherry and a hint of herbs and perhaps soft cedar, and a lovely dark and tart cherry presence on the palate, it develops no secondary flavors or profile and in my view simply falls short of its reputation. I enjoyed it for sure, but it is not what it purports to be in my book.

    January 3, 2015 - Really so disappointing. Wine is faded and relatively one dimensional, not at all what i hoped for from a Mascarello Riserva. But i am also of the view that recent vintage Barolo, 1990s and younger, are simply not the wines of their predecessors. They do not live up to their pedigree any longer as a general statement, no at all limited to either one producer or one vineyard.

    March 17, 2012 - Roses and tar along with red summer fruit. Quite lean on the palate and a bit of a let-down after the wonderful nose. I'd wait or decant more before serving this.

    (Giuseppe Mascarello Monprivato) Just Classic. If you have a friend who has never had Barolo before and they want one. Open this. This is Barolo in spades. Nose of tar, dried fruits, leather, roses, violets, nuts and some classic Monprivato geranium. The geranium aromas were always there but as you kept going farther back they become more harmonious and subtle. The palate was pure harmony. Long, dense and just so complete. Long dissipating finish.
