The "Basarin", from vineyards in the Basarin cru in Neive, has sweet black fruits and currants on the nose, but is firm and lean on the palate, providing excellent nearer-term drinking. Garnet red in color; intense and complex on the nose, with aromas of ripe red fruit and spice. The flavor is warm and vigorous; the mouth-feel rich and soft. The wine is well-balanced, intense and with a long finish.
With a touch of oak adding sweetness and spice, this red is totally seductive, from the floral, cherry and licorice aromas and flavors to the supple texture and harmony to the lingering aftertaste of sweet fruit and spice. Ripe and charming, with a soft feel to the dense tannins. Best from 2013 through 2032.
Moccagatta's expression from the Basarin cru will blow you away. This thickly extracted Barbaresco opens with a rich, dark appearance and opulent aromas of sweet spice, leather, toasted almond, vanilla and ripe cherry fruit. This is a big, masculine wine that would pair with pork medallions and caramelized onions. The finish is soft and slightly sweet. Keep it in your cellar 10 years or more.
The 2007 Barbaresco Basarin flows across the palate with elegant layers of perfumed fruit. Silky tannins frame the round fruit through to the long, generous finish. This isn't the last word in complexity, but it is one of the most flat-out delicious 2007 Barbareschi I tasted. Floral, minty notes add complexity on the finish. The Basarin is a great choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so, but it will be even better in another year or two, once the French oak integrates a bit more. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2022.
