1978 Cantina Mascarello Barolo

$999.99
1978 Cantina Mascarello Barolo
John Gilman 95 pts! The 1978 vintage from Bartolo Mascarello is a slightly bigger and more robust wine than the 1982 and 1985 versions, and like the 1982, this is just starting to reach its prime. The bouquet is superb, offering up a fine aromatic constellation of black cherries, roasted venison, road tar, forest floor, fresh herb tones, dried roses and a topnote of bonfires. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and fairly muscular in style, with a fine core, excellent backend mineral drive, modest tannins and a very long, complex finish that closes with outstanding grip and bounce. This too is only going to get better over the next couple of decades, but it is already pretty hard to keep one’s hands off of the bottles in the cellar! (Drink between 2016 - 2050)
