Here is a first taste of a new wine from Pio Cesare following the estate's acquisition of vines in the Mosconi cru of Monforte d'Alba a few years back. The 2015 Barolo Mosconi opens to a less complicated bouquet with steady and clean aromas of wild berry, balsam or grilled herb and crushed stone. My sample did take a little extra time to open, but once it did, the wine presented all the detailed and nuanced characteristics of the grape with pinpoint precision. It's great to welcome a new wine to the greater Barolo family. Only 5,000 bottles were made.
Pio Boffa and his nephew Cesare Benvenuto purchased vineyards in the Mosconi cru of Monforte d'Alba a few years back. With the 2015 vintage, we get a first taste of their Barolo Mosconi, the newest addition to this estate's portfolio of wines.
