"From a bottle caked in mud and dust acquired over two decades in the cellar, 1990 Barolo Monprivato is a fascinating and epic wine. I tasted bottle number 00982. It pours from the glass with a garnet ruby color that shows a translucent, brilliant appearance. The bouquet is fine and elegant with a long parade of varietal aromas spanning from forest berry and cola to white truffle and pressed violets. It´s a wine of a million fine points and hidden details that reveal themselves seductively and slowly. As the bouquet takes on more air, a new set of aromas with spice and dark espresso begin to emerge. The mouthfeel is equally elegant and fine with silky tannins and points of bright acidity that add a great sense of dimension and energy. It´s a gorgeous expression of Nebbiolo and one of the most profound and beautiful Barolos I tasted in this retrospective. Medicinal and menthol notes drive a beautifully long and complex finish. Give the wine plenty of decanting time; 12 hours or more. Drink: 2014-2024."

"Mauro Mascarello's 1990 Barolo Monprivato is every bit as exceptional as the 1989. Rich, sweet and intense, the wine flows onto the palate with an opulent, caressing core of perfumed fruit. The 1990 is slightly more forward than the 1989, but for this typically long-lived wine that isn't such a bad thing. The 1990 is an especially opulent Monprivato that caresses the palate with endless layers of sweet, perfumed fruit. Some Monprivatos make you think?.this isn't one of them, it is pure pleasure from start to finish. A third bottle, tasted at the home of Robert Parker, conquered Barolo fan and novice alike, showing that the world's great wines are great precisely because they are able to bridge the gap between tasters with dramatically different palates."
