Description

Established in 1953, the Azienda Agricola Molino is located near the ancient abbey of S. Martino di Marcenasco, in the heart of Barolo and includes Vigna Conca, one of the most famous crus of Langhe. Mauro Molino took over the family estate in 1979 and made his first Barolo from the vineyard Conca in 1982. He started producing three of his most important cru in the town of La Morra: Barolo Conca, Barolo Gancia and Barolo Gallinotto.

Mauro’s eldest child, Matteo joined the family winery in 2003. Long passionate about the production of top-quality wines, Matteo showed interest in winemaking and taking care of the vineyards from a very young age. Matteo, like his father, attended Alba Winemaking School and after graduating, threw himself headlong into the family adventure.

After learning from Mauro, Matteo, a far-sighted and ambitious young man, brought fresh ideas and innovation to the company, promoting a type of winemaking aimed at enhancing the quality, the elegance and the superiority of the wines.
Another important objective for Matteo and his family is the environmental sustainability and respect for their territory, which has offered them such exceptional opportunities.

In 2009, Martina, Mauro’s younger daughter, joined the family business together with her father and brother. Martina also graduated from Alba Winemaking School. Thanks to her inquisitive mind and passion for communication, she directs her endeavours towards developing and advertising the company philosophy.

Today, they own 18 ha of vineyards and their wines receive high acclaim from critics year after year.

“The locality of Bricco Luciani was central during our childhood and is also central to our family history. The vineyard from which it comes is located right in front of the winery, which is in fact the house where we grew up. The memories are kept alive in the wine label design; the full expression of beauty, elegance and femininity typical of La Morra’s Barolo. Because of the memories that bind us to this wine and to its floral and fruity bouquet, it is Martina’s favourite wine” Matteo and Martina Molino

Wine Advocate Tasting note

With fruit from La Morra, the Mauro Molino 2018 Barolo Bricco Luciani shows sharp contours and etched lines with blue and purple fruits, cola, grilled herb and wild rose. The wine’s structure is firm and mild, but the silky nature of the tannins is what stands out most. 93 Points, Monica Larner, August 2022

 James Suckling Tasting note

Some nicely focused red berries on the nose and palate here. Some dried leaves, too. Medium-bodied, lightly firm and silky with a tidy finish. Needs another year to integrate better. Try from 2023. 92 Points, February 2022

Wine Spectator

This leads off with a good dose of spicy new oak, with vanilla and resin aromas and flavors wrapped around a core of cherry, plum and eucalyptus. Fresh and firm, yet feels balanced in the end. Best from 2024 through 2037. 90 Points, Bruce Sanderson, September 2022

Food Pairing

Perfect partner to Italian food, ragú with pasta, wild mushroom risotto,  truffles. Great with Italian cheeses.
