    Barolo 1996
    B. Mascarello
    Bottle (2)

    The Calvinson collection. Our meticulous collector (born in '59) has assembled an incredible cellar of world-class wines. Everything was purchased on release, or from the most discerning retailers around the world, and stored in a purpose built temperature and humidity controlled cellar and in professional storage. Bid with confidence.

    "...The 1996 Barolo is absolutely stunning. Vibrant and wonderfully alive, the 1996 exudes class. Time has gently softened the 1996 tannins, rendering the 1996 super-expressive today. Balsamic, mentholated notes, along with scents of tobacco and dried stone fruit continue to open up with time in the glass. The 1996 is still firm and quite powerful, but not as austere as many wines are in this vintage. Tar, licorice and scorched earth add the closing shades of nuance in an impeccably balanced, vivid Barolo that captures the personality of the vintage at its best." (97 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Oct. 2017)


    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
