Mosconi joins Ravera di Monforte for the first installment of Massimo’s 2016’s. Sitting next to the Ginestra Cru at a slightly higher elevation. It’s a cru produced by Conterno Fantino and Chiara Boschis. The first time we’ll see this Cru from Massimo. Monforte typically has one of the boldest tannin profiles of the Communes of Barolo. Nebbiolo from Monforte in the hands of Massimo, somehow usually shows much more plusher tannins. Truth will be known when we see it in the glass.

Gary Walsh, The WineFront

Red fruit, sage, spice, almond, quite floral too, but powerful and latent. It shows a little oak influence, though not overt, and the underlying power and ‘mineral’ feel to the wine, and the stuffing will serve it very well with time in the cellar. Tannin is firm and mouth-coating, with freshness and fine length to close. The feel of it is very convincing.
