Talk about mimetic desire! You can imagine my envy when I read Mr. Franco Ziliani’s post this morning on tasting the 2008 Langhe Nebiolo [sic] by Maria Teresa Mascarello of the Bartolo Mascarello winery in Barolo.
For those of you who don’t read Italian, I’ve translated Mr. Ziliani’s tasting notes at VinoWire (here).
Maria Teresa made only 2,000 bottles of this reclassified Barolo (for a vintage, 2008, not ideal in Piedmont because of excessive rainfall).
Man, I hope someone will save a bottle to open with me!
In the meantime, read about it here…
