"One of the most elegant and restrained wines of the year"

Bartolo Mascarello's Barolos are legendary. They are some of the most soulful expressions of Nebbiolo that you'll ever taste.

There are very few Barolos that are as hard to find in quantity.

Today, I'm excited to offer Bartolo Mascarello's 2017 Barolo for $294.95 per bottle. 

The 2017 is one of the highlights of the vintage. Maria Teresa Mascarello teased out an incredible amount of finesse and purity from the vintage. Antonio Galloni writes that the wine is "gracious, perfumed and very nicely lifted". That's a nice summary, but I should emphasize how thrilling the wine is. 

It's hard not to be taken by the 2017's radiance and precision. The wine offers an incredibly compelling glimpse of traditional Barolo. 

There's not much more that needs to be said. Mascarello's are some of the most soulful expressions of Nebbiolo that you'll ever taste. I'm very happy to have an opportunity to offer the 2017 Barolo.

Title

Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2017 Barolo is gracious, perfumed and very nicely lifted. An effusive, floral bouquet opens first, followed by a rush of red berry fruit. Nervous, a bit wiry at this stage, the 2017 is going to need at least a few years to fully open, but all the elements are in place to allow that to happen. Maria Teresa Mascarello's Barolo is one of the most elegant and restrained wines of the year. It's not an immediately impressive or captivating wine at this stage. The purity of the flavors is just striking, though. Give it a few years to blossom."
