It is a touch less aromatically complex than the preceding wines yet it offers notable concentration and fatness on the palate which helps balance the wine's significant structural components.

Wine Review:

"A deep, resonant wine, the 2004 Barolo Conca is all about the texture and voluptuous fruit this south-facing site is so adept at yielding. The Conca is pliant and open, with plenty of immediacy, but fewer of the shades of nuance that the very best sites are capable of providing. All things considered, though, the Conca has developed nicely over the last few years. It is best enjoyed sooner rather than later." 90pts Antonio Galloni
