This elegant bottle takes its name from the vineyard where Mauro Molino and his family carefully source the Nebbiolo grapes for their flagship Barolo. Conca is one of the most prestigious vineyards in La Morra and the family own just 0.38 hectares of vines here which allow them to make a very limited number of bottles of this wine per year. Once part of the nearby convent of Mercenasco, the site is prized for its distinctive amphitheatre shape which shelters the vines while simultaneously receiving plenty of warm summer sunshine.
The unique microclimate and the rich limestone and clay soils here help to craft a hearty style of Barolo with a firm structure and great complexity. Mauro claims that this is his favorite wine thanks to the captivating nose full of rose petals, dried fruit and succulent cherry liqueur which carry through onto the palate. Also present are hints of cinnamon and cloves from the 18 months of ageing in French oak which helps to soften Nebbiolo’s robust tannins and add a touch of elegance.
This is a wine with huge ageing potential and if you have the patience to cellar this wine for a decade or so, you’ll be rewarded with even more complexity as the wine continues to evolve and change over the years. If you prefer to open it now, consider accompanying the wine with game dishes, hard cheeses or a prime steak to harmonise with the firm tannins and intense full body.
