Bartolo Mascarello's Barolo is one of the wines that, for me, is essential to have in the cellar. It's that good.
When talking about Bartolo, it's impossible not to focus on the über-traditional methods. Maria Teresa Mascarello is fond of saying they're "The Last of the Mohicans." But what wins you over is their precision and their finesse.
The 2019 highlights this stylistic hallmark. It is one of the standouts of the vintage. The 2019 is harmoniously composed with an incredible amount of detail and elegance.
The aging curve for Bartolo Mascarello's Barolos is epic. The 2019 will have no trouble seeing its 20th birthday.
The difficult part is that there's always very little wine to go around. Production is limited and few other Barolos are as sought after. This is a modest parcel, so we advise that you get your orders in early.

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2019 Barolo is a very beautiful, delicate wine that captures the best this vintage has to offer. Gracious and light on its feet, with striking inner sweetness, the 2019 is captivating from the first taste. Kirsch, rose petal, mint, hard candy, cedar and orange zest all grace this super-classic, perfumed Barolo. Young Nebbiolo tannins are there, but they are very elegantly woven into the wine's frame. Vineyard sites are Cannubi, Ruè, Monrobiolo di Bussia and Le Rocche dell'Annunziata, co-fermented in the style that is such a house signature."
