Bartolo Mascarello Barolo 'Cannubi - Cavalieri Tartufo' 1971

Known for traditional winemaking methods and richly aromatic wines, Bartolo Mascarello’s Baroli are benchmark expressions of Piemontese Nebbiolo. 1971 was an outstanding vintage in the region, potentially the best of the last century. To honor the year, Bartolo crafted this special bottling in honor of his father, Giulio, for an annual Tartufo e Vini d'Alba competition. Piedmont aficionados, this cuvée is not to be missed.
