Moccagatta Barbaresco 2017

Email
Varietal: Nebbiolo
Sub-Region: Barbaresco
Region: Piedmont
Color: Red
Country/State: Italy
93 Wine Spectator (11/30/2020) "There is wonderful purity to the cherry, raspberry, incense and tar flavors in this red, backed by a dense matrix of tannins. In the end, the ripe fruit returns, and this remains long and satisfying. Best from 2022 through 2038. 700 cases made, 400 cases imported."
93 James Suckling (7/2/2020) "A rich, round Barbaresco with ripe berries, chocolate, orange peel and dried meat. Round-textured tannins and a juicy, savory finish. Drinkable already, but better in two or three years. Try after 2022."
92 Wine Advocate (7/23/2020) "The Moccagatta 2017 Barbaresco is a blend of fruit from Muncagota and Ronchi (in Barbaresco) and Cotta (in Neive). This classic expression is beautifully accessible and immediate with a sweet and smooth quality that permeates the entire wine. That sweetness reflects the warmth and heat of the vintage, and the wine is more structured and tannic that you might initially suspect. Some of that firmness comes from 12 months of barrique aging. It packs a swift little kick at the end that gives this wine the power to pair with beef or pork. Some 8,000 bottles were made. Drink Date: 2022 - 2035."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
