1990 Bartolo Mascarello, Barolo (RT93) Also Slow O’d for the day, but a bit jostled around on the trip to my place and unfortunately, the ultrafine grained sediment got stirred up resulting in cloudy muddledness……but notwithstanding that picayune detail, a perfectly wonderful showing for this guy’s guy. Built on a frame of sweet ripe fruit and tannin, this is a seriously delicious Barolo, sneakily seductive, dare I say sexy yet showing moments of masculinity. Still, the tannin head in me couldn’t help but yearn for just a touch more vigor in the form of a slap of firm tannin and a zip of fresh acidity.
