Barolo Monprivato is the jewel in Mascarello’s crown. A single area, located in the village of Castiglione Falletto, of just under 7 hectares which straddles two geological eras resulting in a mixture of sand and pebble soils. The vineyard has a lovely southwest exposure and sits at just under 300 meters above sea level. It produces a wine which rewards long aging and is amongst the very finest and complex in Barolo.

Giuseppe Mascarello is one of Barolo’s greatest names. The family have been producing wine in the Langhe since 1881 and today the estate is run by Mauro, aided by his son Guiseppe and daughter, Elena. The wine making process remains very traditional with hard and meticulous work being put into the vineyard. Manual weeding, crop thinning, and a very late harvest all ensure that the grapes are of the highest quality before they arrive at the winery. They believe in long macerations and extended maturation in large oak casks (botte). The resulting wines are suited to long term bottle ageing.
