Ruby red colored. The nose is intense and elegant. The palate is full in the mouth, well balanced and has well integrated tannins.
Pair this wine alongside your favorite game or red meat dishes.
WS9 2 Wine Spectator
Spicy and inviting, featuring a beam of pure cherry, leather, licorice and tar flavors, shaded by vanilla and toasty oak. Firm, courtesy of the wood, with a touch of dryness on the finish. Bright acidity keeps this vibrant and long. Be patient. Best from 2022 through 2035.
RP 91 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Moccagatta 2016 Barbaresco shows terrific balance and a very generous disposition that makes a great first impression. This is a steady and balanced wine, with a silky approach and long flavors of wild berry, spice, tobacco and licorice. Try this Barbaresco with typical Piedmontese carne cruda, or raw meat.
JS 91 James Suckling
Dried cranberries, dried strawberries, cherry tart and orange peel. Chewy and fruit-driven, but shows form and composure within the cherry-laden center palate. Drink from 2023.
The Moccagatta estate, founded by the Minuto family in 1952, has taken outstanding qualitative leaps since the 1980's. Adoption of barrel fermentation and aging in small French oak; severe pruning and grape thinning; employment of sophisticated cellar equipment and careful fermentation-maceration techniques: all this and more have poised Moccagatta at the forefront of quality winemaking in Barbaresco.
