92+ Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "(Barbaresco "Bernadotti"- Giuseppe Mascarello e Figlio) I had never previously tasted this wine, from a cru in the village of Treiso, and was very impressed with how well Mauro Mascarello had done with this purchased fruit. The nose is deep, complex and very stylish in its blend of cherries, fresh sage, woodsmoke, summer truffles, balsam boughs, a touch of tariness, new leather and forest floor. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very tangy, with excellent mid-palate concentration, superb soil inflection and a very long, chewy, old school finish that closes with a nice touch of resinous tones and overt flavors of summer truffles. This is another fine example of the school of "noble rusticity" and a lovely, lovely bottle of Barbaresco with years of life still ahead of it. (Drink between 2010-2040)." May/June 2012 #39
