Winemaker's Notes

100% Nebbiolo from a new vineyard parallel to Sori Ginestra but higher in altitude, averaging 1312 feet. The vines date back to 1950, with some replanted in 1999-2000, propagating the best existing vines onto new rootstock. Southeasterly exposure with soils high in calcareous marls, rich in magnesium, conducive to very high levels of polyphenols.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Barolo Mosconi emerges from the glass with a powerful expression of plums, prunes, sweet spices and menthol, showing tons of plumpness in a juicy, full-throttle style. The Mosconi, from a south-facing vineyard in Monforte, is a decidedly opulent, powerful wine loaded with intensity and sheer weight. Though never a particularly subtle Barolo, in 2006 the Mosconi is truly exceptional. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026."
94 Points

"Good deep red-ruby. Superripe aroma of red fruits, brown spices and tobacco. Fat with sweet fruit, with the expansive middle palate combining lush texture and serious power. The dense and powerful but sweet tannins arrive late, allowing the fruit to expand on the back end. The small and less well-known but superb Mosconi vineyard, just to the south of Ginestra, is also the source of Clerico's Per Cristina bottling and Rocche dei Manzoni's Big d'Big."
94 Points

"Shows dark chocolate, plum, tobacco and leather notes up front, then the aggressive tannins take over. The finish is gripping and dry, but there’s sweet fruit that returns, managing the tannins in the end. Requires faith. Best from 2014 through 2035."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
