The 2017 Barolo is gracious, perfumed and very nicely lifted. An effusive, floral bouquet opens first, followed by a rush of red berry fruit. Nervous, a bit wiry at this stage, the 2017 is going to need at least a few years to fully open, but all the elements are in place to allow that to happen. Maria Teresa Mascarello’s Barolo is one of the most elegant and restrained wines of the year. It’s not an immediately impressive or captivating wine at this stage. The purity of the flavors is just striking, though. Give it a few years to blossom. [Antonio Galloni, 11/02/2021]
Ca d’Morissio, named in honor of Mauro’s Grandfather Maurizio, was created from replanted vines in the Monprivato vineyard in the 1980s using the much revered Michet clone of Nebbiolo and produces around 4000 bottles per year. The wine is made only in the best vintages since 1993 and the latest release, the 2013, is a magical wine. Intensely aromatic, pure and classically structured, the wine will need a decade or so of cellaring and is destined to become a classic.
