Hmmmm. I know this is a great Domaine and was excited to taste this Barolo. But this 9 year old wasn’t even close to ready. Still so astringent and a relatively short finish. Also these babies are so devoid of fruit it takes a special sensitivity to appreciate them. Just not sure I have the patience to buy and wait as long as it takes.

OMG, fantastic '08 Barolo from one of the greats. Wonderful now and will be spectacular in 10+ years.

Taut, tense and coiled. Loaded for years to come. Classic and pure.

This wine is stupid good. And I'm not telling you where this is because it's only €80 on their list and I'm going to drink it all.

Sometimes you just can't wait . . . Apologies to the Mascarello family for drinking this now, but it was delicious.

Fragrant and gorgeous in the glass. All the prettiest sides of Barolo exist in this bottle. But still a bit reticent and tannic (not a surprise at this age). This was more open than many 08's I've had recently. And the aging possibilities are very exciting.
