Conterno-Fantino Barolo Mosconi 2004
Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Barolo Mosconi is the first release from this south-facing vineyard in Monforte, which the estate controls through a long-term lease. It is an impressively endowed, full-bodied Barolo with a multitude of tar, smoke, mocha, vanilla, mint and sweet dark fruit flavors that coat the palate with superb depth and persistence. As is usually the case with Barolos from this site, the wine is made in a distinctly powerful style that emphasizes fruit at the slight expense of aromatic complexity. That notwithstanding, it is a compelling Barolo. In 2004 the Mosconi contains fruit from only the oldest vines. A parcel the estate replanted will be added to the wine in forthcoming vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
Wine SpectatorFabulous aromas of blackberry, licorice and plum. Full-bodied with chewy tannins and lots of fruit. A big, juicy wine, with plenty of muscle. A new Barolo from this producer. Best after 2012.
