Moccagatta Barbaresco 2013
The 2013 Barbaresco is an absolutely delicious entry-level wine. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, wild flowers and spices are all pushed forward in a beautifully perfumed, sweet Barbaresco that overdelivers big time. Readers will have a hard time keeping their hands off this super-expressive, engaging Barbaresco from Moccagatta and the Minuto family. - Antonio Galloni
The Minuto family is making wonderful Barbareschi. This is filled with super-ripe dark fruit and broad tannins, with so much juicy black cherry and plum. A backbone of floral and mineral persists to the finish. Has a bit of a modern edge to it but it is built to age. Might be the best buy in Barbaresco.
