  • The '64 is a beautiful Barolo, and features the sweetness of red fruit and red floral tones I associate with old Mascarello, but shows a bit more meatiness and earthiness than the 1958 and 1955 beside it. On the nose, I found smoke, dark red fruit, raw meat, sweet spices, and dried roses. On the palate, the wine retains a good intensity, coming across in texture somewhere in between the powerhouse 1958 and the very finessed 1955, with sweet, pure red dried fruits, roses, smoked meats, earth, and spices, with smoke and spice notes lingering on the finish.

    This showed similarly to my note from 2020. I like the '64, but it has a bit of excess of earth / meat notes that I think are distracting from the underlying fruit and floral tones that I want to taste.

  • La Festa del Barolo: Rare Wine Dinner - Bartolo Mascarello (Legacy Records): From a magnum. I did not take very detailed notes on this. It was getting towards the end of the night and this was right next to the 58 which absolutely bowled me over and so this got a bit less focus. It’s a good wine per my notes but not at the level of the ‘55 or ‘58

  • The '64 Mascarello is a beautiful mature Barolo. The nose was nicely perfumed, fresh, and cool in tone, with very sweet red fruit, mint, smoked meats, and a heavy dose of earth. On the palate, it remains nicely concentrated with sweet red fruit, smoke, and earth, adding some fresh mint towards the long, sweet finish. It's a gorgeous wine, with the signature sweetness, freshness, and cool tones I keep finding in aged Mascarello. This appeared to be a perfect bottle with an excellent cork. Compared to a '58 tasted recently, the '64 showed more earthiness and a bit less power.

  • Opened about 14 hours before drinking. It really developed beautifully over the course of the day. A truly beautiful wine. A graceful, elegant extremely interesting old lady. Served in a Riedel Sommelier Burgandy glass, which was perfect.
