    The 2016 Barbera d’Alba (two years in botte grande) is a sculpted and refined expression of the grape that shows poise and beauty. Lively, bright and full of nervous energy, it delivers good fruit fleshiness and a crisp acidic endnote. It also shows beautiful mineral characteristics that are typical of the San Lorenzo vineyard. This Barbera shows the qualities for longer cellar aging. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

    “The Last of the Mohicans” is a moniker that, with a playful touch of self-irony, Maria Teresa Mascarello uses to describe her winemaking philosophy. One of the most legendary cases of daughter-succeeding-father in Barolo today, this petite woman has superseded the enormity of Bartolo’s vision. Thanks to her tenacity and steadfast, she has breathed new life into the concept of “traditional” Barolo from her tiny winery at the heart of the Barolo village. If this winemaking school is experiencing a renaissance today, this is in large part thanks to her. She may be the last of the Mohicans, but she has started a new tribe.

    偉大な伝統的バローロを産み出す最高峰生産者「バルトロ マスカレッロ」のマリアテレ‐ザ女史が造る素晴らしい味わいのバルベーラです。僅か0.38ヘクタール所有するサンロレンツォの畑に植えられたバルベーラから造られます。サンロレンツォの畑のバルベーラを使用。丸みを帯びた果実味豊かな辛口で、後味にチョコレート、バニラの甘い感じが残る。タンニンも丸い印象。当たり年ともなれば、ゆうに10年以上の熟成のポテンシャルを持つバルトロマスカレッロのバルベーラ。生産量の少なさからバローロよりも入手困難となっています。濃密で複雑性において確実に他のバルベーラと一線を引きます。北部の気候性ゆえ酸が多く、ドライで果実実が少ない点でワインビギナーには少し難しいワインなので、この良さが分かるのは十分ワインを飲み慣れてからになるかもしれません。それでも以前と比べても十分飲みやすくなった印象です。
