    (from a portion of the Monprivato hillside replanted in 1988 with a selected clone of michet)) Bright, deep red. Knockout nose offers a kaleidoscope of Barolo scents: red berries, rose petal, bergamo t, white truffle, menthol, eucalyptus, tar, graphite, licorice, tobacco. An explosive, extremely intense wine, with lovely inner-mouth perfume and great palate coverage. Subtle nuances of dried flowers, tobacco, minerals and truffley underbrush. Magically fresh for the vintage, finishing with firm tannic spine and subtle red fruits, flowers and minerals. I retasted this wine in New York alongside the Giacomo Conterno Monfortino from the same vintage and found this to be more complex.

    Mascarello's outrageous 1997 Barolo Riserva Ca' d'Morissio makes a case for itself as the most primary and unevolved wine of the vintage. It offers everything one could want from a Barolo, starting with a huge, brooding balsamic nose of spices, cocoa, leather, menthol and tar. This superbly structured wine is massive, with waves of ripe dark fruit that coat the palate, potent tannins and an exquisitely long finish. Made from a special parcel within the heart of the Monprivato cru planted with the Michet clone, this Riserva is only released in top vintages.

  • 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.
