Parusso Barolo Mosconi 2013 (750ml/6)
Winemaker Marco Parusso was overwhelmed with emotion when he discovered an old document at his family’s estate in Barolo.

Wine Advocate"Parusso's 2013 Barolo Mosconi presents thick waves of darkness and thickness that wash over the senses. This is a firm and tightly structured wine that reveals an immovable series of hearty flavors, including Morello cherry, pipe tobacco, black licorice, truffle and moist earth. The Mosconi cru is located in Monforte d'Alba, which is known for power and nuanced delivery. This wine offers unique hints of dried rosemary and crushed mineral as well." - Monica Larner, August 2017
Vinous Media"The 2013 Barolo Mosconi is the most masculine of these Barolos. A wine of weight and gravitas, the Mosconi offers notable power from start to finish. Black cherry, chocolate, dark spice and gravel fill out the wine's broad frame effortlessly. The whole clusters add a measure of aromatic nuance." - Antonio Galloni
James Suckling"Love the bouquet of flowers and citrus with fruit in the aromas. Full body, chewy tannins and a lots of fruit. It is very powerful and needs time to soften the tannins."
