Rated 95+ points by Stephen Tanzer`s International Wine Cellar: `Good deep red. Reduced nose opens with air to reveal black raspberry, licorice and coffee; makes the 2009 smell candied in comparison. Wonderfully lush, layered and sweet, but with vibrant acidity (6.3 g/l) giving shape to the primary dark fruit and espresso flavors.? This marvelously sappy and rather modern-style Barolo finishes with pliant tannins, outstanding energy and building perfume.? Really showcases the 2010 vintage at its best.`
Rated 95+ points by Antonio Galloni in VINOUS: "The richest and darkest of these wines, the 2010 Barolo Mosconi is laced with dark cherry, plum, chocolate, menthol, savory herb and clove nuances. The Mosconi is a wine of power, breadth and richness, with tremendous resonance and weight, all qualities typical of this south-facing site in Mosconi. Naturally, the 2010 needs time to fully come together, but today it is striking and impeccable in its balance. The rich, explosive finish makes it hard to resist a second taste. The 2010 spent one year in 100% new French oak barrels and a second year in cask."
