    Barolo 1990
    Monprivato, G. Mascarello
    Bottle (2)

    "It pours from the glass with a garnet ruby color that shows a translucent, brilliant appearance. The bouquet is fine and elegant with a long parade of varietal aromas spanning from forest berry and cola to white truffle and pressed violets. It’s a wine of a million fine points and hidden details that reveal themselves seductively and slowly. As the bouquet takes on more air, a new set of aromas with spice and dark espresso begin to emerge. The mouthfeel is equally elegant and fine with silky tannins and points of bright acidity that add a great sense of dimension and energy. It’s a gorgeous expression of Nebbiolo and one of the most profound and beautiful Barolos I tasted in this retrospective. Medicinal and menthol notes drive a beautifully long and complex finish." (97 pts. Monica Larner, Wine Spectator #213, July 2014)
