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 calcerous-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.

Black cherry, licorice, leather, vanilla and tar aromas and flavors are the highlights of this rich, dense red. The tannins are assertive, but this has harmony and a long finish. Best from 2017 through 2029. 416 cases made.

The 2011 Barbaresco Basarin is a ripe and modern expression with bold cherry Maraschino and candied blackberry followed by toasting spice and sweet almond paste. The oak presence is evident and will soften with more time in the bottle. Its concentration shows big density and a high level of extraction for the color-weak Nebbiolo grape. The wine is velvety soft and richly textured. Barbaresco Basarin can be opened shortly or can benefit from more aging. Drink: 2015-2022.

Aromas of mature plum, blackberry, toasted oak and vanilla carry over to the palate along with coffee and espresso. Raspy wood tannins give an astringent finish.
