Barbaresco ‘Bric Balin’, Moccagatta
100% Nebbiolo grown in the commune of Babaresco, where calcareous blue marl soils dominate. All of the fruit comes from the slopes of the Muncagöta cru, which happens to be the dialect form of “Moccagatta”. The grapes are macerated on the skins in temperature-controlled steel tanks, then the wine is aged in French oak barriques, of which approximately 40% are new, for 18 months. 1,300 cases produced annually.
