Since the late 19th century the Mascarellos have been running their own wine estate. It was Giuseppe Mascarello who founded the company in Monforte d’Alba in 1881. It was Giuseppe's son Maurizio who bought land in Monprivato in Castiglione Falletto and moving the business there. Maurizio two sons Giuseppe and Natale fell out and the estate was split between them. Giuseppe completely renovated the winery, bringing in new Slavonian oak barrels. His son Maura took over in 1968 and began a decade of experimentation in wine making. When Mauro's uncle died, he took the chance to rejoin the two estates, considerably extending its vineyard area.

"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." Antonio Galloni
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
