RENATO RATTI BAROLO DOCG CONCA 17
97 Points, James Suckling
"Very floral with lavender, violets and dark fruits. Medium to full bodied with tannins that build on the palate. Very long and intense. Transparent fruit and evident terror."

"The 2017 Barolo Conca is laced with the essence of dark cherry, menthol, licorice, lavender, cloves and leather. Ample and deep, yet also super-classic, the 2017 Conca is incredibly harmonious in the early going. Even in this warm, dry vintage, the Conca is one of the most transparent, classic Ratti Barolos I have tasted in some time."

"With fruit from La Morra where this historic winery is located, the Renato Ratti 2017 Barolo Conca is balanced and quite elegant, showing no overt signs of ripeness that could be expected of this hot and dry vintage. This bottle circumnavigates those hot-vintage pitfalls with graceful coordination. Wild cherry, crushed flowers, smoke, tart and crushed flint all emerge from the bouquet. The wine shows sweet fruit, but there is an equally measured point of salinity to balance it out. If anything, the mouthfeel in 2017 is a bit drier compared to past vintages."

"Blue flower, botanical herb and French oak aromas come to the forefront. The full-bodied, elegantly structured palate offers dried cherry, pomegranate, licorice and crushed mint framed in taut, close-grained tannins. A mineral note evoking saline lingers on the firm finish."
