The Mosconi Cru, in the heart of the village of Monforte d’Alba, is a vineyard that I watched for many years. I had always loved the silky, powerful tannins of wines from this site and tried for quite a while to purchase fruit here. It was in 2009 that finally I gained access to this site, which is such a unique, youthful contrast to the wines I produce from the Barolo village. All of my Cru wines are vinified with similar methods, so when you taste Mosconi, you can see the distinctiveness of this site, with more plum and berry notes. The wine is vinified all in stainless-steel tanks with frequent punch downs and pump overs. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged in French oak barriques (30% new) for approximately 24 months and 12 months of bottle aging.
Press Notes :
94 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media – “The 2018 Barolo Mosconi shows all the gravitas and natural darkness of this site, but in miniature. Black cherry, plum, gravel, smoke, crushed rocks and incense fill out the layers. There is plenty of Mosconi muscle, even if the volume of the best years isn't there.”
