RP94Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The excellent 2013 Barolo Conca breaks away from past editions in terms of intensity and elegance. This classic vintage has produced a wine of power, heft and concentration. Yet that determination is delivered with polite manners. The base of the wine consists of ample structure and depth. The multilayered aromas on top peel back to reveal dark cherry, licorice and white truffle. This wine is endowed with generous heft and substance that should carry it steadily through its bottle evolution.
Richly textured, delivering cherry, strawberry and floral flavors, backed by power and finesse. Tobacco, mineral and tar notes peek through as this this plays out on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2022 to 2038.
Rose, iris, ripe red berry and aromatic herbs are some of the aromas you'll discover in this wine. It's both focused and juicy, delivering succulent Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, mint and licorice alongside a backbone of fined-grained tannins that leave a firm finish. Bright acidity provides balance. Drink 2023–2043.
A big and juicy wine with so much fruit and velvety tannins, yet this remains balanced and delicious. Full body and a fruity finish. Drink in 2018.
