Barolo Mosconi Organic 2017, E. Pira
The aroma is at first invitingly ripe, succulent strawberries, before distinct characteristics of both fresh red cherries and dried cherries emerge. Behind the immediate fruit follow savoury, complex nuances of chestnut, malt and carob. Lovely purity and freshness in the mouth, with gentle structure and cranberry-like tannins. Woody, herbal and floral scents on the finish indicate the complexity that will develop over time. This is an utter joy to drink already, although it should have no difficulty developing for a further 10 years or longer.
