James Suckling "96" Points: This is very concentrated on the nose with so much blackberry, blueberry and ripe-strawberry character. Camomile-tea undertones. Full-bodied, very polished and sexy with racy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Shows depth and texture. Better in 2021.Robert Parker "95+" Points: The 2013 Barolo Mosconi shows thicker textural fiber and greater overall power. The Mosconi site is characterized by heavy clay soils that act like a sponge and keep the moisture locked deep within even during the warmest months. The wine opens to coffee and dark fruit with more cherry, spice, tobacco and black truffle at the back. The mouthfeel is generous and wide in appeal, showing tannic firmness that coats the palate. The wine's layering is rich and lasting in intensity. This wine shows excellent possibility for further cellar evolution._Chiara Boschis describes the 2013 vintage as having a double personality. It started off cool and the the growth cycle got off to a slow start. The second half of the season saw a faster acceleration that quickly compensated for the delays. The Cannubi cru is south-facing and is usually among the first vintages to ripen. It suffers most in the hot years, but performs beautifully in more temperate vintages like 2013 (that also had more moisture in the soils). Chiara was joined by her younger brother Giorgio in the winery in 2010.
