Giuseppe Mascarello

Mauro Mascarello and his legendary Barolo Monprivato represent the culmination of more than 130 years of great Giuseppe Mascarello wines.

 

Today, Mauro Mascarello is the last remaining giant of the great Barolo generation that included Giovanni Conterno and Bartolo Mascarello.

Mauro has been the winemaker for the Giuseppe Mascarello estate since the late 1960s, succeeding his father, Giuseppe, and his grandfather, Maurizio, both legends in their time. And like them, Mauro is a traditionalist dedicated to long fermentations and aging in old botti.

But Mauro has also made important changes, not the least of which was the creation of a single Barolo from the great Monprivato vineyard in 1970. Prior to that year, his family had always made their towering Barolos and Barolo Riservas by blending Monprivato fruit with grapes from other sites.

"Veronelli avrebbe detto che aveva “il fiato del Barolo”, quella fase olfattiva un po’ rustica (“zerga”, avrebbe scritto, con un suo neologismo), inizialmente ridotta, ma che poi si dispiega in note di liquirizia, goudron e fiori secchi. Colore incredibilmente giovanile (c’era molto nebbiolo michet, spiegherà poi Mauro Mascarello, che era presente). Sapore che esplode letteralmente, con tannini persino giovanili ed una struttura da fuoriclasse. Indimenticabile."
