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.-B.S.

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. 94+ -Antonio Galloni

Love the nose of dried berries and walnuts with hints of coca powder. Full-bodied with round tannins and a silky texture. It's succulent and savory. Like it slightly better than 2007. Better in 2015.

Blueberry and violet on the nose. Much more imploded than the Vigna del Gris with strong minerality to the black fruit and violet flavors. Quite uncompromisingly dry and tannic and in need of long aging. This is all spine today but possesses the sheer energy to evolve in bottle for 20 years or more.
