Mosconi

2015 First Vintage

BAROLO-MOSCONI-2015

Vintage description

2015 began with heavy snowfall that allowed for a good accumulation of water in the soil. The vegetative cycle was anticipated, and after a mild spring came a very hot and dry summer. Thanks to the winter water reserves, the plants did not undergo any stress, which allowed for an excellent ripening of the fruit.

Notes

This vintage produced 556 bottles, 30 magnums. We planted Mosconi in 1998, and for a long time we used its best grapes for our Barolo Serre. The 2015 vintage shows a deep and velvety structure that is authentic to the hillside.
