Bartolo Mascarello’s 1986 Barolo, from a vintage plagued by hail, is a powerhouse, with layers of dense fruit and enough structure to drink well for another 20+ years. This magnum, from my cellar, is terrific, but not the best example of the 1986 I have had.

Bartolo Mascarello’s 1986 Barolo (magnum) is extraordinary. As Barolo lovers know, the crop was reduced severely by hail, but the wines that survived remain fabulous. Bartolo Mascarello’s Barolo is one of the wines of the year. Classic old-school Barolo aromatics are given a little extra amplitude by the richness of the year in a super-classic Barolo that dazzles everyone at the table. Interestingly, the 1986 is a hit with both novices and experts, proving that great wine is universal.
