94 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 1971 Barolo Monprivato is from a much more important vintage than the 1970, but here the entire surface of the vineyard was used, meaning the wine is composed of various clones. The 1971 is a soft, floral and delicate Barolo with tons of class. Clean, mineral notes define the long and supremely pure finish. As great as the wine is, it can't match the profound 1970. That said, the 1971 is still in magnificent shape." 9/09
94 Points, John Gilman, View From the Cellar: "(Barolo "Monprivato"- Giuseppe Mascarello e Figlio) We did not have the '71 Monprivato in our lineup in Los Angeles, but only a few days before I was to leave for that tasting a crossed paths with a bottle of the '71 generously shared by Greg Dal Piaz, one of New York's most passionate Barolo enthusiasts. The 1971 Monprivato is still a tad on the young side, and no doubt will continue to improve as it really reaches its apogee of full maturity. The bouquet is deep, pure and absolutely beautiful, as it offers up notes of black cherries, tar, roses, bonfires, gamebirds, a touch of mint, camphor, fresh herbs and a topnote of cedar. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and blossoming, with fine structure, great complexity, a rock solid core of fruit, still a bit of ripe tannin to resolve and lovely acids on the long, palate-staining finish. This is one of the all-time great vintages of Monprivato, and a few more years should see it completely blossom and commence to drink at its zenith. A great, great wine. (Drink between 2011-2045)" May/June 2008, #15.
