For me a major disappointment. This wine really needs serious decanting time – the orange peel note, blended with the alcohol took too much focus.
1990 Bartolo Mascarello, Barolo, Piemonte, Italy
(From a magnum bottle)
Very old school Barolo – first peppery, orange, prunes and the mid-cores gives out scents that could resemble rubber/latex or raincoat. The taste is stunning with an overwhelming concentration and persistent finish. (96)
