Mosconi, as I have said many times, is a vineyard that I coveted for years before I was able to purchase a plot here in 2009. I vinify all of my Cru wines the same – so when you taste Mosconi, you can identify how this unique site produces stunning wines of structure and power. Vinification takes place in steel tanks under temperature control with frequent pumping over and punching down, followed by aging in lightly toasted French oak barriques (30% new) for 24 months and one year further in the bottle prior to release. Mosconi shows black plum and berry fruit characteristics, and the silky yet powerful tannins are well-integrated even in youth.
95 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media – “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."
