2006 Renato Ratti "Conca" Barolo

SKU #1384365 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A modern version, this red is packed with mint and sweet spice flavors that accent its cherry character. Supple and concentrated, with a long aftertaste filled with fruit and spice. Well-proportioned, but just needs time. Best from 2014 through 2030. (BS, Web Only-2011) Inner quote mark

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Yummy nose, with grilled meat and ripe fruits. Very plummy. Full body, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Generous, yet refined. Inner quote mark (1/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2006 Barolo Conca opens with a blast of dark red fruit before it shuts down mightily in the glass. The Conca appears to have more mid-palate density and richness than the Marcenasco. The aromatics remain rather reticent, suggesting the wine will need at least several years before it begins to uncoil. Still, it is hard not to be impressed by the Conca in this vintage. The finish in particular is noteworthy for the balance of fruit and structural components. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2010)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good medium red. Nose shows warmer aromas of tobacco, marzipan, mocha and dried flowers. Then juicy in the mouth, more open than the Rocche but less sweet and refined. Finishes with a slight tannic dryness. This warmer site often produces somewhat rougher tannins, notes Ratti. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (11/2009)
