"Some of the most elegant, refined and brilliant wines in all of Piemonte"
-John Gilman 2013 Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Monprivato

Posted by Ian McFadden

Mascarello’s Monprivato is one of the great monuments of Piedmont.

The 2013 Monprivato is one of the most anticipated releases in some time.

Monprivato is a singular expression of Nebbiolo. Its elegance, clarity of expression and purity of fruit, earth and flower make it really stand out.

Few wines achieve the finesse that Mascarello coaxes from this top site.

The 2013 promises to be one of the most stunning examples of Monprivato in some time. The vintage is all about finesse and clarity. As you can imagine, 2013 produced a Monprivato of extraordinary grace and transparency. In short, the magic of Monprivato is in full effect.

Expect an incredible amount of agility and fascinating levels of nuance. There's gorgeously vivid fruit and floral notes (roses, violets, etc.) with crystalline purity, mingled with spices and complex minerality.

Monprivato's transformation in the cellar is stunning - over decades it grows even more elegant and transparent. There's no doubt that the 2013 is a vintage to go long on.
