High praise for Mascarello and La Zerba

02 May 2012 Categories: Awards

We are pleased to announce that both Mascarello and La Zerba have recieved recent critical acclaim for their wines from two highly respected sources.

Macsarello Barolo

In a classification of the '100 Best Wines in the World' the “ENCICLOPEDIA DEL VINO” (WINE ENCYCLOPAEDIA - published in Italy by Dalai Editore) has ranked Mascarello's 2003 Ca d'Morrissio Barolo Riserva in 19th place.

This gives it the top Italian ranking in the list, out of the 23 wines included.

The encyclopaedia also makes a special note of listing Giuseppe Mascarello II as being among the “patriarchs” of Barolo.

... Quite rightly !!

La Zerba Gavi

We are delighted with the news that La Zerba Gavi di Tassarolo ‘Terrarossa’ DOCG 2010 has been awarded an amazing 90 points by Robert Parkers’ Wine Spectator. This makes it the highest rated Gavi reviewed from the 2010 vintage -  a fabulous result and we congratulate all involved in producing a wonderful wine.

Even better though, is the fact that this score gives it the second highest rating in the Wine Spectator EVER awarded to a Gavi - from any vintage !  

This is an incredible achievement and we are very proud to represent La Zerba Gavi in the U.K
