E. Pira and Figli de Chiara Boschis Barolo Mosconi 2018

Barolo, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyOne of 3 Barolo released by Chiara this year, with vinification and aging, is kept the same across the three to highlight the differences of the terroir. Barolo Mosconi comes from a single vineyard of a newly acquired property in Monforte d’Abla. This 0.8-hectare site rests at 370m and faces south. After a native ferment in stainless, with frequent pumping over and punch downs, all of the Baroli were aged in lightly toasted 30% new French oak for 24 months and one year further in the bottle before release. Fragrant wild cherry, medicinal raspberry, and roses fill the palate of this powerful Barolo, bedded with subtle candle wax and scented with scrubby herbs. The ample sticky tannins lead this to a ferrous, saline finish. Very much in youth, this has ample time ahead in the cellar.Tasted: 07 December 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
