The last of the great Barolo generation is Mauro Mascarello who took over for his father, Guiseppe. He has been making incredible wine since the late 1960s. Not only does Mauro continue the family’s tradition of excellence, he also brought about incredible changes. Monprivato, the family’s vineyard from which they had been sourcing and blending with fruit from other Barolo sites, changed after 1970. Mauro opted to bottle the wine as a single vineyard site. He realized the potential for Monprivato as a wine that could shine on its own with perfume and richness. It has been one of the most consistently magical wines coming out of the Langhe region.
This is another Mascarello ambition to bottle a wine from a single vineyard. Scudetto is a small vineyard in the Perno hamlet of Monforte d’Alba with Barbera vines planted in 1998. The wine is matured in oak barrels for a few months, then rests until the three year mark following the vintage.
