MoccagattaWinery in Italy’s Piedmont region is one of the most respected in area. The two brothers who own and make the wines at Moccagatta, Franco and Sergio Minuto, are dedicated to their land as much as their wines. Using low impact farming techniques and organic products to control pests and fertilize their land.
They bottle several Barbarescos, Barbera, Dolcetto and even a high quality Chardonnay.
While I am a fan of most of Moccagatta’s wines, their Barbera d’Alba, 2012 is a little too fruity for me. It is dark ruby red in the glass; the nose is strawberry jam with a slightly smoky aroma and hints of spice. The palate is very jammy with concentrated red fruits, there is some earth in the background, but the flavor profile is very one dimensional, no layering of flavors that many Barbera’s have. I didn’t get some acidity in the background that would have made this wine more interesting.
