Renato Ratti Barolo Conca 2015
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Floral, berry and white pepper aromas introduce this elegant red, with flavors of cherry, orange peel, grass and mineral in harmony with the sleek profile. Firms up on the finish, yet remains juicy, giving a lasting impression of sweet fruit. Best from 2022 through 2038. 120 cases imported.
Aromas of rose, exotic spice, camphor and woodland berry shape the nose. Focused and linear, the elegant palate offers juicy raspberry, strawberry compote and star anise alongside taut, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2021-2027.
Pietro Ratti and his family have created a truly beautiful expression from the Conca cru in La Morra. The 2015 Barolo Conca is more austere and closed initially compared to many of its peers from nearby vineyard sites. But you still get a sense of the profound depth and power of this warm vintage. This wine has the textural richness and fiber that is typical of this vintage with a more structured and sophisticated inner personality. A mere 3,000 bottles were made.
