    Barolo "Mosconi" DOCG 2016 (BIO)

    Barolo from the single vineyard Mosconi of the same name presents itself powerful, muscular and full of opulence. Rich scent of eucalyptus, wild rosemary plum and black cherry. Deep and powerful on the palate with beautiful spicy accents, dense tannin and a very juicy framework. This Barolo belongs to the top class of the appellation for us, it carries its great weight with elegance and is highly authentic, in the style of Chiara Boschis, who has delivered something great here with the top vintage 2016! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Mid to deep crimson. Very pretty nose of earthy, complex fruit with subtle oak note and hints of pine. Succulent and supple red-fruit palate with great focus. Delicious, chewy tannins. Ends a little mouth-watering." Jancis Robinson

    "The vivacious Chiara Boschis has been a modernist producer for 25 years, although she now uses far less new oak than in the past. She is best known for her Cannubi, but the Mosconi, from 1ha within this Monforte vineyard, can be just as fine in some vintages. The colour is deep for Barolo, the cherry and blackberry nose generous and opulent. It's a plump, rich, full-bodied and very concentrated wine that's assertive and youthful now - but in balance. Darker-fruited than most Barolos, it's structured, taut and long." Decanter

    "The 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a gorgeous wine made all the more remarkable given that Mosconi can't really be said to be a top-level site. Dark and imposing, the 2016 captures all the breadth and tannic clout that are such signatures of this site. This is an especially brooding, virile Barolo, but Chiara and Giorgio Boschis clearly brought out all the best the vineyard had to give." Vinous

    "The E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a little wider and richer compared to the Cannubi, with bigger fruit, more sweetness, spice, grilled oregano and a touch of crushed hazelnut. Despite the wide net of aromas offered on the bouquet, this wine shows a very sharp and focused approach with elegantly linear tannins and matching acidity. There is a lifted quality to both the nose and the mouthfeel that gives this wine beautiful momentum and length. Mosconi is one of the headline vineyards of Monforte d'Alba." Robert Parker

    "A full-bodied, chewy 2016 with a solid structure of ripe fruit and intense tannins. Lots of plums, walnuts, hazelnuts and light chocolate. It’s very powerful. Very classic structure. From organically grown grapes. Needs time to resolve the powerful tannins. Try after 2022." James Suckling
