1990 Mascarello, Barolo, Monprivato (RT 97) Throwing virtually no sediment at age 29. Brilliant translucent garnet, paling at the rim. The bouquet presents classic Nebbiolo nuances with waves of red cherry, kirsch, tobacco and smoky creosote, then on the back end dried roses and a hints of aged saddle leather. A gentle giant. The mouthfeel is powerful and precise, showing itself in layers of fruit, the finish is long as lush, ripe tannins round things out magnificently. Drink now-2030+
