Description Sub Region Producer Notes
1999 was one of the great Barolo vintages of the twentieth century, and this ’99 from Bartolo Mascarello embodies the aromatics, structure and pure, ethereal grace of the year. Translucent Nebbiolo fruit rest on a bed of baking spices, potpourri, warm saddle leather, fresh-cut herbs and mineral-laden earth in this stunning wine. Wrapping the palate in a profusion of fine-grained tannins, this ’99 is an extraordinary effort from the late, great Bartolo, who passed away in 2005. Crafted as a traditional cuvée, Mascarello sources its Nebbiolo from just over twelve acres planted in the historic vineyards of Cannubi, Rué, and San Lorenzo in the commune of Barolo and from Rocche in the commune of La Morra. While Barolos deriving from these areas tend to offer great aromatics and elegance, few also have the structure and longevity of a Mascarello Barolo. Fewer than 1,200 cases crafted a year, and only a fraction are adorned with this special hand-painted “No Barriques, No Berlusconi!” label.
