Moccagatta’s Basarin Barbaresco is sourced from the Minuto brothers' holdings in the Basarin cru in the township of Neive. Basarin is distinguished by its high altitude (over 260 metres), its southern exposure and its sandier soils.

The grapes were macerated on their skins in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats before the wine was matured in French oak barriques for 18 months.

From Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
Moccagatta Barbaresco Basarin unveils super seductive aromas of mocha fudge, clove, toasted almond, sweet cherry and cured meat. There’s enormous depth and density here and the finish is thick and chewy. The wine lasts long on the palate and would pair perfectly with any truffle-based dish. 93 Points, 12/09
