Barolo Riserva Monprivato Ca d'Morissio 2012 Giuseppe Mascarello
This sublime Barolo Riserva comes to us from the Mascarello winery, a historic Piedmontese producer. The Nebbiolo grapes come from the famous Monprivato cru, located in the municipality of Castiglione Falletto, more precisely from the part called "Ca'd Morissio" owned by the family.
The vineyard is located at 280m above sea level on calcareous-clayey soils, perfect for giving Nebbiolo complexity and longevity. After a rigorous manual selection, a traditional vinification takes place with very long maceration on the skins. The refinement lasts 40 months in Slavonian oak barrels.
The result is a Barolo with a garnet red color embellished with orange reflections. The nose reveals an ethereal bouquet of red fruits, violets and spices. In the mouth it is austere and elegant, with velvety tannins and perfect freshness. An icon of Barolo and of all Italian wine, to be combined with important dishes.
