Winemaker 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

WS 92
Wine Spectator

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.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

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.

Produttori del Barbaresco
Founded in 1958, the priest of the village of Barbaresco, recognizing that the only way small properties could survive was by joining their efforts, gathered together nineteen small growers and founded the Produttori del Barbaresco. From its humble beginnings making the first three vintages in the church basement, Produttori del Barbaresco has grown to a 52 member co-operative with 250 acres of Nebbiolo vineyards in the Barbaresco appellation and an annual production of over 500,000 bottles. Its vineyards amount to almost 1/6 of the vineyards of the area. Each member is in full control of their land, growing Nebbiolo grapes with the skill and dedication they have honed over generations.

Playing a key role in elevating the quality level of Barbaresco over the years, Produttori del Barbaresco produces a simpler Nebbiolo Langhe, a Barbaresco blend and nine single vineyard wines produced in premier vineyards: Asili, Rabaja, Pora, Montestefano, Ovello, Paje, Montefico, Muncagota and Rio Sordo.

Languedoc-Roussillon

View all wine

An extensive appellation producing a diverse selection of good-quality, value-priced wines, Languedoc-Roussillon is the world’s largest wine-producing region, spanning the Mediterranean coast from the Spanish border to Provence. Languedoc forms the eastern half of the larger appellation, while Roussillon is in the west; the two actually have quite distinct personalities but are typically grouped together. Languedoc’s terrain is generally flat coastal plains, with a warm Mediterranean climate and a frequent risk of drought. Roussillon, on the other hand, is defined by the rugged Pyrenees mountains and near-constant sunshine.

Virtually every style of wine is made in this expansive region. Dry wines are often blends, and varietal choice is strongly influenced by the neighboring Rhône valley. For reds and rosés, the primary grapes include Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, and Mourvèdre. White varieties include Grenache Blanc, Muscat, Ugni Blanc, Vermentino, Maccabéo, Clairette, Picpoul, and Bourbelenc. International varieties are also planted in large numbers here, in particular Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. In Roussillon, excellent sweet wines are made from Muscat and Grenache in Rivesaltes, Banyuls, and Maury. The key region for sparkling wines here is Limoux, where Blanquette de Limoux is believed to have been the first sparkling wine made in France, even before Champagne. Crémant de Limoux is produced in a more modern style.
