Moccagatta Barbaresco Bric Balin 2004

Moccagatta, Barbaresco, Bric Balin 2004 There’s a classic sense of licorice in the nose burnished by the sweetness of oak. The structure is a whopper like you would expect yet the extract is there, keeping up with the structure – the wine is big and at the same time it is balanced.  This baby would benefit from some years in the cellar. The grapes are by definition 100% Nebbiolo and the wine spends 18 months aging in French oak barriques, 40% of which are new. Proprietors Francesco and Sergio Minuto. P&B in Barbaresco 14.5% $43.99 at Bottle Barn
