2018 Dolcetto d´Alba Bricco Mirasole, Giuseppe Mascarello

2018 Dolcetto d´Alba Bricco Mirasole, Giuseppe Mascarello
The Dolcetto´s from this adress is always fine, and the 2018 Bricco Mirasole is no exception. The nose is elegant and fresh with notes of violets, red currants, mustard seeds and iron filled earth.
The taste is young and tight with notes of ripening blueberries, dried herbs, violets and chrushed rocks. Lively and long. 6+ years.

I have finally bought some Sensory glasses - - which have been crafted by Roberto Conterno. When we visited Roberto in November 2018 - Barolista: Not So Long Overdue Notes - The Barolo Boys Visit Giacomo Conterno - the glass was just on the market and we got to hear the story behind it from Roberto himself, and it proved how great it was when we tasted, among others, the Monfortino :-)
Now I´m testing it at home with all sorts of wines. In the picture above it is, from left to right, Riedel Cabernet, Riedel Pinot/Nebbiolo and Sensory. 
A hands down win for Sensory...


  1. Hej
    Hur tycker du att Conternoglaset hanterar alkohol?
    Vad är det för diameter på öppningen? Vad väger dom?

    1. Alldeles utmärkt, har hitintills testat (förutom Dolcetto´n) - Sangiovese (Sensory klar vinnare), Syrah (Sensory knapp vinnare) och Nerello Mascarello (Sensory vinnare). De väger 128 gr och öppningen är 75 mm.

  2. Tack för svar, två stycken är beställda för utvärdering.
