Rare as they come
Since time immemorial Nebbiolo has been the most highly-prized vine and the wine-growing emblem of Alba and the Langhe, and when it is matched with a great wine-making terroir it is capable of expressing itself at sublime levels in wines of remarkable personality, intense bouquet, great smooth tannins, and outstanding possibilities of evolution and resistance over time.
The 4 generations of the Giuseppe Mascarello family have been growing wines for more than a century and a half, first as farmers running the Manescotto estate in the village of La Morra for the marchesa Giulia Colbert Faletti di Barolo, and then on their own property since the late 1800s
The Mascarello family property extends over 15 hectares of vineyards, all located within the Barolo wine-growing area. Some, like the MONPRIVATO vineyard, can now be said to be a part of the family great family history and regarded as some of the great wines of the world.
The 2007 Barolo Santo Stefano di Perno rarely gets mentioned in a discussion of this great property but several recent vintages have been outstanding, which is the case with the 2007. A very fruity, elegant, intense sweet dark cherries, pine, minerals and flowers are some of the aroma that flesh out in the glass. The 2007 is a striking Santo Stefano di Perno filled with site specific detail but with an extra layer of richness that is the signature of the year. A Clean, excellent body with power and stuffing, full, well-balanced. To be enjoyed with red meats in general, game, mature cheeses. This is every bit as fabulous as it was from the barrel. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027
