The 2020 Barolo Conca has more generous fruit, with a bit more of a broad nature throughout. It is lush with sage, fresh herbs, and ripe red cherry and is medium-bodied on the palate, though it has generous fruit up front, with ripe sweet tannins and a long finish. The 2019 is classic, but this has a lot of immediate charm as well as ripe structure and freshness.

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.
