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.
2016 Barbaresco is a vintage to hoard. Even this entry level offering from Moccagatta is legendary. You are so going to want more of this when you get your lips on a glass of this stunner. It's modern and polished and just a joy to drink now, but will age out for a decade with ease.
