The Mauro Molino 2015 Barolo Conca is the most impressive and firmly compact of the wines presented this year from this estate in the picturesque, hilltop village of La Morra. Indeed, this wine showcases the textbook La Morra characteristics of fine fruit, elegant tannins and an elongated, streamlined mouthfeel. This Barolo floats forward over the palate with the grace of a snowy egret. It shows a glossy and polished approach that merits pause and consideration. Fermentation is in stainless steel and aging takes place in barrique. A mere 3,068 bottles were released. 94/100.
James Suckling: 94/100 A more modern feel to the nose here with a layer of toasty oak sitting across abundant spiced red-cherry aromas. The palate has a handy array of fine, succulent tannins that carry a long thread of rich, fresh red-plum and cherry flavors. Juicy and intense Barolo. Try from 2022.
