Lot #738. Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Monprivato 1996

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 95 JG.
"The 1996 Monprivato is also noticeably darker in color than its 2001 counterpart, and the wine is destined for greatness in the not too distant future. The wine offers up a superb bouquet of black cherries, camphor, gamebirds, sous bois, bonfires, fresh thyme and a marvelous base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and plenty structured, with bottomless depth at the core, firm, old school tannins and stunning grip and focus on the very, very long, still fairly chewy finish. This may well need as many years as the 2001 Monprivato to soften up structurally- though it is already starting to show the first signs of secondary complexity in its aromatic profile."
