Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The dialect spelling Mùncagòta is sometimes used to define this vineyard of 20 acres of which 10 are managed by Produttori . It is the only single vineyard with a full south - east exposure which means full sunshine in the morning rather than in the afternoon and therefore a slightly cooler micro - climate. Higher calcium in the soil defines a very elegant, intense wine with a distinct floral, sometimes minty bouquet. Tannins are firm and the finish is long lasting. Produced for the first time in the 1967 vintage.

Great complexity and full body, intense fruit, firm tannins and a very long finish. Extremely elegant, intense fruit in a refined bouquet. Perfect with egg-fresh pasta dishes, risotto,white and red meat, game, venison, cheese. Longevity for 18-22 years.

Critical Acclaim

"Shows ripe raspberry and orange peel on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and mineral, berry and licorice flavors. This has a polished, velvety mouthfeel. Powerful for the vintage. Best after 2011."
92 Points

"Good full red. Reticent black cherry and licorice on the nose. At once sweet and penetrating, with a firm spine of acidity and apparent minerality giving this very young Barbaresco an almost painful quality. This has the medicinal reserve and the structure to age a long time."
92 Points

"The 2005 Barbaresco Riserva Moccagatta is one of the more compact, linear wines in this vintage. The Moccagatta offers up sensations of bright red fruits, flowers, spices and vanilla in a rather unyielding style. The wine should improve in bottle but the tannins will likely always remain somewhat firm. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."

Before 1894, Nebbiolo grapes were sold to make Barolo wine or simply labeled Nebbiolo di Barbaresco. But in 1894, Domizio Cavazza, headmaster of the Royal Enological School of Alba and a Barbaresco resident, created the first cooperative, the Cantine Sociali, by gathering together nine Barbaresco vineyard owners to make wine in the local castle that he owned. He understood well the...

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
