Press and Tasting Notes

[95 pts Wine Advocate] “The 2010 Barbaresco Bric Balin is my favorite wine of the year. It’s a full-throttle Barbaresco with full servings of black fruit, spice, leather, tar, tobacco and licorice. The wine oozes darkness and richness, but then surprises you with a playful touch of sweet cherry on the finish.”

THE REVIEW

Perfectly aged single vineyard Barbaresco is a rare find. It is even more rare when the wine hails from the stellar 2005 vintage.
    Tucked away in northern Italy is the Bric Balin vineyard, the crown jewel of Moccagatta's estate. This spectacular vineyard produces some of the highest quality fruit in all of Piedmont.
    From the cover of Wine Spectator magazine to your glass, this wine never disappoints. Moccagatta is also a multi-year winner of Italy's most prestigious wine accolade, Tre Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso. Aged to perfection, this library release Barbaresco can be enjoyed today and for another seven years. "A super fruity red, strawberry and milk chocolate aromas lead to a full body with smooth tannins and a long, long finish. Very balanced and fruity." Wine Spectator Moccagatta's Bric Balin "is a wine of notable freshness and overall harmony. Sweet red cherries, menthol and spices emerge from this beautifully-balanced Barbaresco. The oak is particularly well-integrated in this vintage." The Wine Advocate
    Though nicely aged now, this single vineyard red has another 10 years of enjoyment. Pair with game and roasted meats. You'll also be surprised at how well it goes with turkey. Enjoy! Read More »
