Moccagatta Barbaresco Basarin 2008
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barbaresco|
A beautiful wine that needs to age, this Basarin cru selection shows thick layers of berry fruit, cedar wood, almond and dark licorice. The oak element is strong, but the wine is still young and all its many elements will surely come into focus in 10 years or more.
The 2008 Barbaresco Basarin is impeccable from start to finish. Sweet rose petals, dark cherries, spices and mocha are some of the notes that emerge from the Basarin. Constantly changing in the glass, the Basarin is at first quite rich in its fruit, but then turns quite a bit more elegant and ethereal with time in the glass. In 2008 the Basarin impresses for its superb overall harmony and balance. This is a fabulous showing from Moccagatta's entry-level Barbaresco. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2020.
