Bartolo Mascarello Barolo, Italy 2017
For more than half a century, Bartolo Mascarello was a towering figure in the Langhe. At the time of Bartolo’s death in March 2005, his daughter Maria Teresa became the head of the house. Today, it is the wine world’s great fortune that Maria Teresa makes wine just as her father did. In fact, while every bit as committed to her family’s methods and traditions as Bartolo was, she may have brought even greater elegance and consistency to the wines through her own subtle refinements.
