A rich, round Barbaresco with ripe berries, chocolate, orange peel and dried meat. Round-textured tannins and a juicy, savory finish. Drinkable already, but better in two or three years. Try after 2022.

The Moccagatta 2017 Barbaresco is a blend of fruit from Muncagota and Ronchi (in Barbaresco) and Cottà (in Neive). This classic expression is beautifully accessible and immediate with a sweet and smooth quality that permeates the entire wine. That sweetness reflects the warmth and heat of the vintage, and the wine is more structured and tannic that you might initially suspect. Some of that firmness comes from 12 months of barrique aging. It packs a swift little kick at the end that gives this wine the power to pair with beef or pork. Some 8,000 bottles were made.
