Lot #926. Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 1970

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 98 AG.
"In my opinion, Mascarello's 1970 Barolo Monprivato remains one of the greatest Barolos ever made. I remember taking a bottle of this wine to a dinner a few months ago and my host thinking I was bringing a lesser vintage! Barolo fans know the 1970 is the first Monprivato, and since it was made from a parcel planted with 100% Michet, it is also in a sense the first Ca' d'Morissio. Still stunning, the 1970 exploded from the glass with seemingly endless layers of dark fruit, leather, licorice, smoke, plums and exotic spices. Readers fortunate enough to own the 1970 need not to worry, the wine will drink well for decades to come." Vinous, Oct 2013
Provenance: The La Palma Cellar
Notes: 3cm, Lightly scuffed capsule, lightly damp stained label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,300
