The 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. Rated 94+

(20% of these vines are 55 years old, the rest 12 to 15): Dark red-ruby. 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. 93+ points

Description
Winery Notes:

BAROLO "MOSCONI" DOCG: CF have three top cru Barolos, Mosconi being the "newest" albeit from very old vines (2 vineyards, one of which goes back to 1950!). The first vintage released by CF was 2004. Soil consists of highly calcareous marls, rich in manganese, conducive to very high levels of polyphenols, particularly anthocyans. Gorgeous structure, ripe, rich tannins, complex, austere.
