2000 Moccagatta Barbaresco Basarin

Long, dense, and generally not my style of Nebbiolo… but this wine turns the trick of amping up without losing the varietal character. A nice current of iron flows through to make sure the sweet fruit doesn’t become cloying. It gets pretty oaky without being a jerk about it. Beautiful with butternut squash / beef stew.
