Renato Ratti Conca Barolo 2005
A great wine for important dishes, red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
Intense aromas of dried flowers and berries. Concentrated and full, with ripe fruit and supervelvety tannins. Long and gorgeous. Best after 2013. 575 cases made.
The 2005 Barolo Conca is a deeply layered, regal wine imbued with tons of elegance and class. Here the fruit tends towards a darker shade of red fruit and the tannins are also a touch firmer than the Marcenasco. The oak is beautifully balanced in this vintage. Sweet menthol, spices and French oak linger on the understated finish. This is a terrific effort from Ratti. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
Conca shares the extraordinary intensity demonstrated by Ratti’s Rocche cru, but is also distinguished by a delicate, more feminine side. The wine is beautifully stretched over fine aromas of exotic spice, white chocolate, dried flowers and blackberries. It ends with power and determination but does so in a charming, less overt manner.
