Chiara Boschis has recently purchased more vineyards in the Mosconi cru located at a cool 370 meters in elevation in Monforte d'Alba. Sourcing its fruit from an organic 1.9-hectare parcel, the 2018 Barolo Mosconi is available in a slightly larger production of 9,000 bottles. This is terrific news for those who love the focus and precision that Chiara Boschis is known for. The Mosconi carries generous fruit weight and volume over a streamlined mouthfeel and tight tannins. The wine ends with fresh notes of blackberry, plum and wild rose. Drink 2025-2048. 96 Points. Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate.
Barolo Mosconi is obtained with the purity of vinification from the oldest vineyard belonging to the homonymous property located in Monforte d'Alba. The terrain is typically Helvetian with an older formation. It is clayey calcareous marl with a slightly gray color, alternating with siliceous sandstones. In some areas the presence of calcium carbonate and iron gives a warmer chromatic note and a slight tendency to pink. These soils, located at an altitude of about 400 meters above sea level, give great structure and characteristics typical of long-aged Barolo. The color is deep brown red; the scent is generally very open with floral scents, ripe fruit, and some spicy notes. In the mouth you can feel the majestic structure of a firm, dry and velvety wine.
