Medium red. Subtle, reticent, very pure nose offers perfumed scents of wild red cherry, rose petal and wild herbs; the most refined of Mascarello's 2007 Barolos. Wonderfully silky and fine-grained on the palate, but with terrific calcaire precision and lift. The wine's highly aromatic red cherry and floral flavors saturate the palate without leaving any impression of weight. This vintage of Monprivato includes about 4% each lampia and rose; the rest is michet, including the juice that normally goes into Mascarello's limited Ca d'Morrisio bottling. The very long finish features harmonious acidity and firm but suave tannins that reach the front teeth. A beauty.

About This Producer


For over a century and a half, the Mascarello family has been tending vineyards in the Piedmont region. The "Monprivato" vineyard (located in the village of Castiglione Falletto) is the crown jewel for this estate and enjoys a prime location. It resides on a hillside composed of clayey-silt marl with elements of limestone. The grapes are treated with the utmost attention from the moment they are harvested to the moment they are bottled. "Monprivato" is only created in the best of vintages.
