Mauro Molino Barolo Vigna Conca DOCG, 2014

£72.50

Category: Italy, PIEMONTE, Mauro Molino – Barolo, 2014

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 started running the estate in 1978 and today owns 11 ha of vineyards situated in La Morra, Barolo and Montforte.

Conca is a beautiful vineyard with a spectacular amphitheatrical shape, characterised by a sheltered microclimate, which gives this Barolo excellent body and structure with a nice punch. Of course, it is Mauro’s favourite wine, the one that most represents the story of Mauro Molino.

Tasting Note

A Barolo with a rich and harmonious bouquet with hints of dried fruit and rose petals, with an intense and complex taste, persistent tannins that offer a very long finish.

Note from Wine Spectator

Cherry, eucalyptus, menthol and wild herb flavors are the main themes in this supple, aromatic red. Balanced, showing dusty tannins for support and bright acidity to keep the flavors in relief. Offers a terrific finish, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2021 through 2042. 230 cases made. 94 Points. Bruce Sanderson. December 2018

Note from James Suckling

The oak is dialed right up and it really dominates the wine right now. Mocha, cola and baking spices sit across cassis and cherries. The structure has merit, but the flavors need to settle down. Try from 2022. 92 Points, April 2018

Note from Wine Advocate

This is a mid-weight wine with a generous bouquet laced with bright cherry and dried raspberry. Like other wines from this cooler vintage, the 2014 Barolo Conca is focused on red fruit aromas as opposed to black or purple fruits. This gives the wine a crisp quality with sharp lines and some very subtle sweetness at the back. Indeed, the wine tastes riper than you might expect. Only 3,064 bottles were made. 90 Points. Monica Larner. Sept 2018

Note from Decanter Magazine

Conca is Molino’s top cru, a sheltered site on limestone soils. Aged in 40% new barriques, it displays a sweet, oaky cherry nose with vanilla tones and considerable charm. The palate is medium-bodied, supple and rounded, with good acidity and concentration. It’s a forward wine that’s pretty rather than profound. Quite long. Drinking window 2019-2030- 90 Points – Stephen Brook, May 2018

Note from Jancis Robinson

La Morra. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with bricky rim. Very perfumed and a sweet marasca cherry nose with hints of cassis. Light cherry and cassis fruit with a layer of bittersweet powdery tannins. More perfume than real depth, yet elegant and with a tiny hint of oak. Drink 2018-2023. 16 Points, May 2018

Food Pairing

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