Mauro Molino Barolo Conca 2010
The 2010 Barolo Conca shows a sophisticated and savory side that is not present in the other wines from Mauro Molino in 2010. This is a masculine expression that already delivers budding tertiary layers of cured meat and saddle leather with dried cherries and crushed flowers. There's a firmness, or austerity to the wine that is really very attractive. Barolo Conca is especially well equipped for long cellar aging thanks to its acidity and tannic firmness. Drink: 2017-2032.
This wine rests heavily on its oak. The palate delivers coffee, oak extract and espresso but very little fruit. Astringent wood tannins on the finish leave the mouth feeling dried out.
