What the Critics say
‘The 2016 Barbaresco from Moccagatta is rich, enveloping and very attractive. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, cloves and leather all flesh out in a wonderfully deep, resonant Barbaresco that will offer plenty of pleasure upon release. This is a stellar wine in its peer group.’
A family affair to this very day, Moccagatta continues to focus on both the terroir of their homeland and the finesse that Barbaresco demands. The vineyards are all farmed organically and the wines, while being aged in a stunningly updated winery, speak of a place and of a people with a long history of tending this very land. If you haven’t been introduced to the wines of Moccagatta, now’s the time. And if you have, we welcome you to reacquaint yourself with these beautiful wines from Barbaresco.
Note: 500 doz made. From a combined 0.9Ha plantings on grey/blue marlstone and sandy liestone, around Neive and Barbaresco. Fermentation and maceration of the skins takes place over 7 days. The wine then matures for one year in barriques (20% new, 80% second and third use). Blending and aging occurs exclusively in stainless steel before the wine ages in bottle for a minimum of 10 months prior to release.
