"Some of the most elegant, refined and brilliant wines in all of Piemonte"
2012 Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Monprivato

Posted by Ian McFadden

Mascarello’s Monprivato is a singular expression of Nebbiolo. It’s one of the great monuments of Piedmont.

Monprivato stands out with its elegance, its clarity of expression and its purity of fruit, earth and flower.

Few wines achieve the finesse that Mauro Mascarello coaxes from this top site. Monprivato is a special wine. Year after year, it's one of our favorite Piedmont wines. This speaks volumes to just how consistent it is.

The 2012 Monprivato flaunts the lift, radiance and elegance that makes it one of the most captivating wines of the region. It shows incredible nuance in its presentation of herbs, spices, red fruits and earth.

In 2012, Mascarello exploits all of the buoyancy and brightness of the vintage. There's a gorgeous textural element that really highlights the 2012's refinement.

Monprivato is one of the magical wines of Piedmont, built on grace and understatement. Its transformation in the cellar is stunning - over decades it grows increasingly elegant and transparent.

Without fail, I get excited with every new release of Monprivato. Besides Conterno and Giacosa, Mascarello's Monprivato has provided me with some of my most memorable bottles of Barolo.
