Barolo Perno Vigna Santo Stefano 2010 Giuseppe Mascarello
1 in stock
A wonderful contrast is provided by the Monforte vineyard of Santo Stefano in the hamlet of Perno, whose redder iron-rich clay soils give the Mascarello wine a more savoury and sage character. Indeed while the Castiglione Falletto wines are decidedly more perfumed and flirtatious , with rose petal prettiness, Santo Stefano is more reticent, shy even, preferring to come to life on the palate, where it builds and grows in stature. It’s broader, more tea leaf, mushroomy, seared meat, muscular, brawny even, with excellent development potential.
