Giuseppe Mascarello e Figlio

Mascarello’s 1988 Monprivato is another gem. It is a classic Monprivato, with a clear red color, and perfumed. ethereal aromas that soar out of the glass. Showing plenty of vibrancy and freshness as well as clean, focused flavors in its suggestions of roses, anise, strawberries and raspberries, it epitomizes elegance and finesse. Although it is perhaps not the most complex or age-worthy Monprivato it nevertheless is a beautiful wine to drink now and over the next 10-12 years. In 1987 I purchased a plot in the Monprivato vineyard from Violante Sobrero. The vines didn’t respond immediately to my pruning and for two years continued to produce the higher yields to which they had been previosuly accustomed. For that reason I have never been fully satisfied with my 1988, adds Mascarello. 91/Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018. In the Cellar # G. Antonio Galloni
