This is the second release of this single-vineyard Barolo by Pio Cesare. The grapes were vinified in two parcels—one for vines planted in 1947 and one for vines from 1971—before blending.
"This is the second vintage released of this new wine from Pio Cesare, and what an elegant treat it is. The 2016 Barolo Mosconi, with fruit from Monforte d'Alba, is a toned and slender wine that shows the inner power and muscle of this corner of the appellation. The bouquet is defined by a pretty mineral note that is backed by wild berry fruit, rose petal and a dusting of crushed stone or tilled earth. I feel the tight tannins of this wine, but I also taste the elegance of the fruit that surrounds them. Only 5,000 bottles were produced. Mosconi is the second single-vineyard Barolo made by this estate after the Ornato was introduced 30 years ago." Robert Parker 96+ Points
"This is round, polished and powerful, its black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit shaded by mineral, eucalyptus and tobacco accents. All the components are in the right proportions and there is energy on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2045. 483 cases made, 85 cases imported." Wine Spectator 95 Points
