The most recently acquired parcel, the famous Mosconi Cru in Monforte d'Alba was purchased in 2009. The vineyard's particular heavy clay soil (in some areas calcium carbonate and iron give the soil a reddish-gray color) lends considerable structure to this wine, making it a Barolo ideal for aging. A garnet red color is complimented by open perfumes of flowers and mature fruit with some spicy notes. This is a long-lasting wine of power and concentration with firm, velvety tannins.

The 2017 Barolo Mosconi is a powerful, brooding wine. Black cherry, gravel, dried herbs, scorched earth, spice and leather add to an impression of gravitas. This is an especially somber, potent Barolo that needs time to soften. Even so, it will always be a brute. The substantial finish is a thing of beauty. The Barolo Mosconi emerges from the estates oldest vines, which are 70-80 years old, and is aged in barrique.

Cherry and plum fruit flavors are accented by vanilla, toast, hay, white pepper and tar notes in this expressive, solidly built Barolo, which is fluid, with a dense matrix of tannins shoring up the long finish, showing fine complexity, balance and length. Best from 2025 through 2048. 800 cases made, 320 cases imported.
