Yum. Pretty blackberry and nutmeg aromas follow through to a full body, polished and chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Loads going on here. Drink or hold.

The 2013 Barbaresco Bric Balin will delight Moccagatta's fans. Ample and generous on the palate, yet with a classic sense of translucency, the 2013 captures all of the personality and pedigree of the year. Full-bodied and intense, but also light on its feet for such a big wine, the 2013 is utterly captivating from the very first taste. A host of red cherry jam, spice, menthol, espresso, violet and lavender accompany the finish. This is yet another impressive wine from the Minuto family.
