2001 Giuseppe e Figlio Mascarello "Monprivato" Barolo

SKU #1023866 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2001 Barolo Monprivato is striking. It boasts gorgeous textural depth and richness to match its highly expressive, compelling aromatics. The wine has begun to soften a touch. Though not at all forbidding at this stage, the 2001 Monprivato remains an infant with at least two more decades of fine drinking ahead. This is a gorgeous effort from Mauro Mascarello. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2031. (AG)  (4/2012)

 The 2001 Barolo Monprivato is pure elegance and class with its brilliant perfume of sweet red fruits, flowers, orange zest, and licorice. Showing a feminine, lightly textured style, it gains breadth and richness with time in the glass and is beautifully balanced on the palate as well as long. It’s drinking beautifully today yet unquestionably has another 15-20 years of prime drinking.  (3/2019)

 Palish cherry-red. Wonderfully perfumed aromas of red fruits, dried rose, flowers and herbs; this smells like a Chambolle from Freddy Mugnier. Wonderfully sweet and juicy, with lovely floral perfume and captivating, high-toned mineral delicacy to the raspberry and red cherry fruit flavors. The very long, youthfully austere finish features firm tannins that avoid coming off as dry. (ST) 93+  (12/2007)

K&L Notes

Estate-grown bunches thinned during the summer undergo traditional-style, floating cap fermentation for 20-25 days. The wine is then matured in medium-sized Slavonian oak barrels for around 38 months. The nose is complex, very fruity, elegant, intense, spicy, with flowery sensations. On the palate, the wine shows excellent body with power and stuffing, demanding, masculine, long and full. One for the cellar.
