Monprivato in a Magical Vintage
2010 Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Monprivato
"The greatest young Barolo vintage I have tasted"

Mascarello's Monprivato is one of the purest, most elegant expressions of Nebbiolo.

In the 2010 vintage, it found its perfect expression.

When you start tasting the 2010s, it's impossible not to be impressed. The vintage has a magic combination of substance, energy and terroir-saturated clarity.

Antonio Galloni's comment that "2010 is the greatest young Barolo vintage I have tasted" doesn't feel one bit out of line.

As always, the headliner for the 2010 Monprivato is finesse. Few wines in the world manage the level of refinement and nuance of Monprivato.

The 2010 Monprivato delivers incredible length and precision. It boasts a pulverized minerality, finely etched red fruits and beguiling floral notes. It's really just a gorgeous wine.

The life of Monprivato is legendary. Over time, it shows its breeding to an even greater extent and gets even more beautifully aromatic and more transparent. The 2010 Monprivato has the stuffing and balance to age beautifully.

This is a very special vintage and a very special wine. Sadly, 2010 Barolo is a vintage where there's huge demand and considerably less wine (somewhere around 30%). The top 2010 Barolos are literally disappearing from the market in a flash. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
