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. James Suckling

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. Monica Larner – The Wine Advocate

Giorgio Boschis explains that their Mosconi site is south facing on heavy clay with substantial diurnal temperature variation. He calls it a wine of duality when young: articulate and pleasing on the nose, then uncompromisingly structured on the palate. Aromas of wild berries, forest pine and liquorice are certainly inviting, then indeed followed by teeth coating tannins which build to a powerful, concentrated crescendo. Perfumed anise and tobacco make a welcome encore on the finish. – Michaela Morris, Decanter

Dark, ample and inviting, the 2013 Barolo Mosconi shows the pure power and breadth that is so typical of this site. Black cherry, plum, mocha, smoke, tobacco and licorice are all fused together. The Mosconi presents an especially virile, baritone expression of Nebbiolo, with less finesse than is found in the estate's other Barolos. That said, there is quite a bit of polish to play off the natural richness of Mosconi. The 2013 is an especially refined, layered wine for this site. Antonio Galloni – Vinous Media

A core of sweet cherry and strawberry flavors anchors this red, gaining complexity from the additional earth, tar, tobacco, licorice and spice notes. Best from 2022 through 2042. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
