Barbaresco ‘Basarin’, Moccagatta
This Barbaresco is birthed from the Basarin cru in Neive, Moccagatta’s only single vineyard located outside of the Barbaresco township. Basarin is marked by its high altitude and calcarerous-marl soils. These estate owned vineyards, dating back to 1967, are located at a southern exposure, allowing for proper sunshine at this high elevation site. The grapes are macerated on the skins in temperature-controlled steel vats before maturing in French oak barriques for 18 months.
