1999 Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello Barolo Monprivato

97 points Vinous

The 1999 Barolo Monprivato is once again stellar. In this tasting, it is the wine's flamboyant fruit and super-expressive aromatics that jump from the glass. Sweet red cherries, pomegranate, hard candy, rose petals and mint meld together as this generous, resonant Barolo shows off its pure and total sense of majesty. Spices and a hint of blood orange develop in a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors. In 1999, Monprivato is just about as good as it gets. Mauro Mascarello did not bottle his Riserva Ca' d'Morissio in 1999; instead all the best fruit was blended into the Monprivato. Today, the 1999 is utterly thrilling. It's as simple as that. (8/2014)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The stunning 1999 Barolo Monprivato remains one of my favorite recent vintages of this wine, and my impression is that it will one day be regarded as one of the great Monprivatos of all time. Made in a rich, almost opulent style for this wine, the 1999 displays heady aromas of roses and sweet fruit, along with a more full-bodied profile than the 2001, with generous amounts of ripe fruit, outstanding length, exquisitely well-integrated tannins and a finish that lasts forever. As it sits in the glass, notes of minerals and tobacco gradually emerge to complete this magnificent Barolo. It is not to be missed. 95+/Anticipated maturity: 2009-2024." 93+? points Stephen Tanzer: "Medium red with an amber edge. Complex, pure aromas of wild red berries, camphor, tar, dried rose, tobacco and nutty oak. Very sweet on entry, then silky, deep and rich in the middle, with impressive depth and breadth. Youthfully backward and currently hiding more fruit than it's showing, but boasts superb incipient complexity and an explosively long, ripely tannic finish." (12/04)
