Description

Winemaker Notes

Garnet red in color, the Conca Barolo shows a delicate and persistent bouquet with traces of licorice, mint and Lebanese cedar pine. Mineral, full flavored, warm and agreeably tannic.

A great wine for important dishes, red meats on the spit or grilled, game, "grande cuisine" white and red meat dishes and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

Rose petal, red berry, exotic spice and a balsamic whiff of camphor all come together on this fragrant red. On the precise linear palate, you’ll find juicy Marasca cherry, pomegranate, licorice and crushed aromatic herb alongside a framework of polished, fine-grained tannins. Vibrant acidity provides balance and energy.

This is a re-taste of a review published several months ago that I left without an official score. The 2014 Barolo Conca is fragrant and enormously floral with whiffs of garden rose, pressed violet and white truffle. In fact, I am very happy I came back to this bottle because it is just singing now with a clear and harmonious voice. Like the other wines from this vintage, the wine shows a delicate, almost fragile state that adds to its overall elegance and accessible appeal.
