What is your Barolo of the year ?

For me :
Giuseppe Mascarello Barolo Monprivato Riserva Ca d’Morissio 2003 : 19/20
Burlotto Barolo Monvigliero 2012 : 18,5/20
Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 2011 (magnum) : 18,5/20
Giuseppe Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi San Lorenzo Ravera 2006 : 18,5/20

Definitly among the best red wines in the world …
Great emotions …


2013 Elio Grasso Casa Mate

1996 Giacosa Asili Riserva – never had a wine this good!

2000 Giacosa Rabaja was singing. This wine has always drunk well, but now its maturing nicely, some might say prematurely. Dammit, just realized you wanted a Barolo, and this is a lowly Barbaresco.

2001 Cascina Bruni Barolo Rivasotto This was a beautiful rendition of a great drinking Barolo. I have one bottle left but am not sure how it can get any better. Should I hold out?

2004 Brovia Villero


Probably the 2015 Comm. G.B. Burlotto Barolo Monvigliero. Had a bottle in a restaurant in Serralunga last week, then tasted it with Fabio at the winery a couple of days later. Incredible perfume, silky texture, voluminous and so long. Wide open and giving for now. Had to bust one from my cellar last night just to check if I wasn’t getting too carried away in rating its greatness. It is one of the greatest young Barolo I have had.

2011 Cappellano Pie Rupestris - a real beauty

Fair, my top 3 Nebbiolo this year were all Giacosa Barbarescos :wink:

Best Barolo was probably 2004 Fratelli Brovia Barolo Ca’mia

That’s good to know, is it really already drinking? I guess 11 is quite a precocious vintage.

Mine is the 01 Pie Franco but that may have been just over a year ago. Already good, showing much promise. All wines so far listed such youngsters.

'99 Monfortino last month

2010 G. Rinaldi Brunate. Incredible potential but also very enjoyable right now.

It is drinking beautifully now.

Yeah, the 11 Rupestris has never shut down. A spectacular wine.

My best older Barolo of the year would be the 1958 Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Riserva.

Top three for 2019 so far:

89 Giacosa Collina Rionda
89 Giacosa Falletto Riserva
89 G. Rinaldi Brunate Riserva
