Conterno-Fantino Barolo Mosconi 2008
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Wine SpectatorBlood and iron aromas morph into cherry and raspberry flavors as this delineated red unfolds on the palate. The mineral element persists, along with a tobacco note and a hint of eucalyptus. Offers terrific balance and intensity combined with fine length. Best from 2015 through 2030. 850 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Barolo Mosconi bursts from the glass with rich dark red fruit, smoke, licorice and tar. The Mosconi, from a south-facing site, is one of the juicier wines of the vintage. It boasts tons of inner sweetness and a layered expression of fruit. As always, the Mosconi is the most overt of the Conterno-Fantino Baroli. The southern exposure of the vineyard gives the fruit roundness and the voluptuousness of the tannin is quite attractive. This is a flat-out delicious Barolo from Conterno-Fantino. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
