A beautiful garnet red color. Th bouquet is delicate and persistent with traces of licorice, mint and Lebanese cedar pine. Full flavored, warm and agreeably tannic.
The 2007 Barolo Conca is a deep, structured wine loaded with dark fruit, spices, menthol and licorice. This is a huge style for a Barolo from La Morra but there is plenty of underlying structure to balance the fruit pound for pound. The Conca is going to be a fascinating wine to follow over the course of its life. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022.
Barolo Conca opens with inky dark concentration and soothing aromas of black fruit, spice, cola, plum, prune and dried lavender buds. The nose presents those ethereal and delicate aromas, but in the mouth, it delivers thicker flavors of chocolate and mocha. Drink after 2018.
Medium red. Higher-pitched on the nose than the Marcenasco, with blackberry, licorice, mint and graphite aromas accompanied by sweet oak scents. Suave, sweet and impressively concentrated; really spreads out to coat the palate. With its full alcohol (15+%) and notes of menthol, eucalyptus and licorice, this big boy comes across as a bit monolithic today, but its finishing breadth, substantial ripe tannins and impression of firm acidity suggest it will evolve gracefully.
Loads of blackberry and spice character, with a hazelnut note. Full body, with fine tannins and a fruity, chocolate aftertaste. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2014.
