- Winery Note
The members of the Giuseppe Mascarello family have been growing wines for more than a century and a half, first as farmers running the Manescotto estate in the village of La Morra for the marchesa Giulia Colbert Faletti di Barolo, and then on their own property since the late 1800s. The Mascarello family property extends over 15 hectares of vineyards, all located within the Barolo wine-growing area. Some, like the Monprivato vineyard, can now be said to be a part of the family history, while the grapes grown on others were first purchased by Mauro before ‚– having had the opportunity to ascertain their quality ‚– he managed to buy the vineyards for the estate. - Winery Note
