2016 Parusso Barolo "Mosconi"
Hints of sage, rosemary, and earthy notes. Very intense aromas with great tannic structure and a perfect representation of Monforte d'Alba.
"The 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a dark, potent wine. Black cherry, chocolate, leather, smokeblood orange and licorice add to the wine's virile personality. A big, ample Barolo, the 2016 shows all the natural richness of this Monforte site, where the wines tend to be quite broad in feel. Readers should be prepared to give it at least a few years in bottle." -- Antonio Galloni
Sweet vanilla and toasty aromas introduce this cherry- and menthol-flavored red. Intense, firmly structured and well-proportioned, with a long, fruit- and spice-filled finish. Best from 2023 through 2042. 150 cases made, 80 cases imported. -Wine Spectator
