Mascarello 2000 Barolo

As I try to learn more about Italian wines I find some of these newsletters from Sergio Esposito useful …

Mascarello 2000 Barolo: “Scavino Rocche dell’Annunziata, Aldo Conterno Cicala, Giacosa Barolo Riserva Le Rocche del Falletto – these wines represent some of the greatest expressions of the Nebbiolo. The advent of single-vineyard bottlings, launched by the likes of Beppe Colla of Prunotto and the Ceretto brothers over thirty years ago have had a profound impact on the Barolo landscape. There is much to discover within each commune and within each vineyard on the soils of the Langhe hills. However, the Holy Grail of Barolo is not a single-vineyard wine labeled Brunate, Cannubi, or Rocche dell’Annunziata. The divine juice is rather a cuvee from the Mascarello estate’s single bottling of Barolo.”
