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.

Blood and iron aromas morph into cherry and raspberry flavors as this delineated red unfolds on the palate. 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. From Italy.óB.S.
