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.
This small cru is in the Annunziata sector of La Morra. Ratti's wines always show finesse rather than power, and this has a delicate, poised raspberry nose. It's medium- bodied but stylish and quite concentrated, with ripe tannins and sufficient acidity. It's a forward style that's quite elegant, balanced and rewarding now, but it's should go the distance too. Quite long. Drinking Window 2019 - 2030.
Attractive ripe red cherries and wild red berries in a vibrant, sweetly spiced style. Has a palate with juicy, even-paced tannins and a strong core of fresh acidity. Drink or hold.
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.
This starts out with licorice, cherry and tar flavors, picking up mint, hay and iron notes as it builds to a lengthy finish. Not a big red, yet intense and solidly constructed. Best from 2023 through 2043.
