Winemaker Notes

The color is garnet red. A delicate and persistent bouquet with traces of licorice, mint and Lebanese cedar pine. Full flavored, warm and agreeable tannins.

A great wine for important dishes, red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

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.

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

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.

Wine Enthusiast

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.

From the 100 acres of vineyards, the Renato Ratti winery produces around 150,000 bottles from the traditional denominations of the area: Barolo, Nebbiolo... View More
