Barolo Conca er Renato Rattis mindste Barolo-cru. Conca-marken giver en vin med en markant tannin, som gør den til den mest lagringsdygtige af alle Rattis vine. Vinen kendetegnes ofte ved et distinkt strejf af viol i den elegante bouquet.
A deep and dark red with plum, dried strawberry and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, rich and dense with silky and bright tannins. Lively finish. Better in 2020.
Perviously labeled as Barolo Marcenasco Conco, the 2012 Barolo Conca offers a good rationale for being made apart as a single-vineyard expression. In a vintage that sees less expressive aromas across the board, this wine shows slightly rounder and plumper characteristics compared to the other two Barolo wines released by Renato Ratti. The quality of fruit is also a bit more approachable, even at this young stage. The bouquet reveals dark cherry, spice and licorice backed by firm tannins and integrated acidity. The results are not as fleshy or dense as 2011, but this wine holds its own.
Alluring scents of violet and rose waft from the glass. The savory, succulent palate offers ripe strawberry, wild cherry, cake spice, chopped herb and anisette. Firm, refined tannins and fresh acidity provide balance while a saline note wraps up the finish. Drink 2018-2028. -KO
Plenty of warm earth and loam elements shade the cherry, mint and tar flavors in this savory red. Rich, with well-balanced tannins and lively acidity keeping this fresh. Best from 2018 through 2032.
