Sourced from the last acquisition of 10 hectares at the Mosconi appellation in Monforte d’Alba, made by the 4th generation of our Family, Pio Boffa, for his 60th birthday. Supple, ripe fruit, complexity, soft tannins. May be appreciated immediately, but with a very long life.

Really attractive blue fruit and flowers with hints of minerals. Full-bodied, very tight and sexy with super fine tannins, at the same time. A structured and racy young wine. Better after 2021.

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.
