    Mascarello's 2004 Barolo Monprivato is an explosive wine with an almost Pinot-like expression of purity in its fruit. This round, sweet Barolo is extremely primary at this stage, with tons of dense fruit that almost cover the wine's tannins completely. Subtle overtones of roses and tar develop in the glass, rounding out this majestic wine. Monprivato is one of the world's very finest values in collectible, age-worthy wine, and the 2004 is another classic in the making. I was blown away by this wine's sheer balance and harmony, both of which are remarkable considering the wine's age.

    Moderately saturated medium red. Captivating, soil-driven nose melds pungent herbs, blueberry, mocha, tobacco, smoke and earth. Quite suave on entry, then sweet, floral and a bit unforthcoming in the middle, with subtle hints of menthol, herbs and flowers kept under wraps by firm acidity. Nuanced in a Burgundian way. There's nothing particularly accessible about this very closed young wine, but the complex, mouthcoating finish suggests that it has considerable potential.

    Raspberry, citrus fruit and sandalwood aromas, with hints of fresh herbs. Full-bodied, with silky tannins. Soft and subtle, with pretty fruit. This is like a fine, old-style Burgundy. Very approachable now.

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.
