| Vinous 95 points (Jan 2014)
The richest and darkest of these wines, the 2010 Barolo Mosconi is laced with dark cherry, plum, chocolate, menthol, savory herb and clove nuances. The Mosconi is a wine of power, breadth and richness, with tremendous resonance and weight, all qualities typical of this south-facing site in Mosconi. Naturally, the 2010 needs time to fully come together, but today it is striking and impeccable in its balance. The rich, explosive finish makes it hard to resist a second taste. The 2010 spent one year in 100% new French oak barrels and a second year in cask.
Wine Spectator 93 points (Oct 1 2014)
White pepper aromas lead off, along with flavors of cherry and black currant. Fruity up front, this presents tight-grained, assertive tannins on the back end. Best from 2018 through 2035.B.S.
Wine Advocate 94 points (Jul 2014)
The 2010 Barolo Mosconi is born in compact, clay soils that result in wines of increased structure and tannic richness. Despite the inevitable territorial imprinting, this vintage shows a heightened sense of elegance and grace. Short maceration times (from 8 to 10 days) also contribute to fix the brilliant ruby and garnet appearance of the wine. Its color integration is stunning. The mouthfeel is juicy and rich with enduring flavors of wild strawberry and raspberry. Drink: 2016-2026.
