Moccagatta Barbaresco Basarin 2005
The 2005 Moccagatta Barbaresco Basarin reveals an attractive core of perfumed ripe red berries, sweet toasted oak and herbs framed by silky tannins. Medium in body, the wine possesses excellent length. This is probably the most accessible Moccagatta single vineyard Barbaresco.

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
