Full-bodied, very polished and sexy with racy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows depth and texture. Better in 2021.

The Mosconi site is characterized by heavy clay soils that act like a sponge and keep the moisture locked deep within even during the warmest months. The wine opens to coffee and dark fruit with more cherry, spice, tobacco and black truffle at the back. The mouthfeel is generous and wide in appeal, showing tannic firmness that coats the palate. The wine's layering is rich and lasting in intensity. This wine shows excellent possibility for further cellar evolution. - Monica Larner

He calls it a wine of duality when young: articulate and pleasing on the nose, then uncompromisingly structured on the palate. Aromas of wild berries, forest pine and liquorice are certainly inviting, then indeed followed by teeth coating tannins which build to a powerful, concentrated crescendo. Perfumed anise and tobacco make a welcome encore on the finish.

Black cherry, plum, mocha, smoke, tobacco and licorice are all fused together. The Mosconi presents an especially virile, baritone expression of Nebbiolo, with less finesse than is found in the estate's other Barolos. That said, there is quite a bit of polish to play off the natural richness of Mosconi. The 2013 is an especially refined, layered wine for this site.

Serious tannins stand guard, showing the potential for evolution. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2042. – BS
