"Nose dominated by graphite notes from the wood, with sweet violet, leather, cherry kernel and a beautiful savouriness. On the palate, a modernist styling shows chalky tannins and a toasty taste accompanied by refreshing acidity, then a persistent tobacco finish. Needs a little more time to come together."

"Medium youthful ruby in hue, the 2020 Barolo Conca is showing off in this sunny vintage, with notes of crushed strawberries, sweet cedar, incense, and fresh lavender. Noble and long, this elegant and medium-bodied Barolo offers up wonderful length and a haunting finish revealing notes of orange peel and rocky earth. It's a lovely wine with a hint of warmth on the finish, although it's still weightless. Drink 2026-2046."

"The 2020 Barolo Conca is a pretty rich, full-bodied wine for La Morra, but it's a style that works. Cinnamon, cloves, rose petal, mocha and sweet French oak weave through a core of intense, red-toned fruit. Plush, silky contours wrap it all together nicely. The Conca is the most immediate of the four crus in the range. As such, it will drink well with minimal cellaring."

"The Mauro Molino 2020 Barolo Conca has loads of spice and is oak-driven throughout. In terms of fruit, you get a bit of grenadine and red berry, but the mouthfeel is kicked up with spice, oak and toasted aniseed. Even the tannins are oak driven. This is a limited 3,040-bottle release. Give it a few more years of bottle age."
