About the Winery:
The estate of Giuseppe Mascarello e Figlio has a long and illustrious history in Piemont, and it is unequivocally one of the greatest Barolo producers. This traditionally-styled winery's origins date back to the mid-1800s, when Giuseppe Mascarello made a name for himself managing the vineyards of other landowners, and which ultimately culminated in the purchase of his own vineyards and cellars in 1881 in the village of Monforte d'Alba.

Mauro Mascarello has been the winemaker for the Giuseppe Mascarello estate since the late 1960s, succeeding his father, Giuseppe, and his grandfather, Maurizio, both legends in their time. And like them, Mauro is a traditionalist dedicated to long fermentations and aging in old botti. But Mauro has also made important changes, not the least of which was the creation of a single Barolo from the great Monprivato vineyard in 1970. Prior to that year, his family had always made their towering Barolos and Barolo Riservas by blending Monprivato fruit with grapes from other sites.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2017 Vintage):

"This wine had been bottled just a few days prior to my tasting visit. The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo opens to a light garnet color that reflects the heat of the vintage (the Nebbiolo grape tends to produce a pale color as those temperatures increase), but the wine's appearance is due to darken and gain in color saturation as the wine spends a little more time in bottle. The bouquet is also poised to open with deeper layers of blueberry, spice and violets." - Monica Larner (Jun 2019)
