Description

Moccagatta's Basarin Barbaresco is sourced from the Minuto brother's holdings in the Basarin cru in the township of Neive. Basarin is marked by its high altitude (above 260 meters) and its calcareous-marl soils; the vineyards owned by the Moccagatta estate are at a south exposure and were planted in 1967 and 1968. The grapes are macerated on the skins in temperature-controlled steel vats with; the wine is matured in French oak barriques for 18 months.
" The 2014 Barbaresco Basarin is another super-concentrated wine from Moccagatta. The Basarin, from a sandy site in Barbaresco that tends to give more lifted wines, exudes a level of depth and intensity that I don't think I have ever seen before here. Plum, black cherry, new leather, lavender and violets are some of the signatures. The 2014 is a superb Basarin with a bright future." Antonio Galloni - Vinous Media
