What the Critics say
‘The 2017 Barbera d'Alba is a tasty entry-level wine from Moccagatta. Plump and juicy, the 2017 is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the red cherry and raspberry jam flavors remain vibrant.’
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: Less than 400 doz are made from a combined 2Ha plantings on grey marlstone and clay, around Neive and Barbaresco. The oldest of vines were planted in 1968, the youngest in 2004. Fermentation in temperature controlled steel vats for 4-5 days, maturation in oak barriques for 6 months.
