1 bottle Giuseppe Mascarello & Figli Riserva 1961
The 1961 Mascarello Riserva is another beautifully poised and refined example of mature Barolo, as it offers up a complex and transparent mélange of red cherries, a touch of anise, celery seed, camphor, a kaleidoscopic base of autumnal tones, camphor, a bit of tar, nutty tones and a touch of dried roses in the upper register. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and soil-driven, with lovely complexity, a superb kernel of sweet fruit buried at the core, and stellar persistence and intensity on the backend. The tannins are now quite faded on the ’61 Mascarello Riserva, but the wine still retains well-integrated acids and superb length and grip on the finish. It does not possess quite the same vigor as the 1964 or 1958, but it will continue to drink beautifully for at least another dozen years, and it would not surprise me to see the wine continuing to cruise along for even longer. A lovely, lovely wine. 2008-2020+. 93
