Mocali Brunello di Montalcino 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red in color, this Brunello has a complex and balanced nose, showing aromas of raspberries and liquorice with notes of chocolate and spice, varying from vanilla to cinnamon to coffee. Warm and full on the palate, the flavors are beautifully pronounced with excellent length. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel; malolactic fermentation follows in oak. The wine ages for three years in large Slovenian oak casks.

Mocali's 2001 Brunello di Montalcino is a refined, elegant effort with layers of vibrant, plump cherry fruit, tobacco, menthol, underbrush and minerals. Though medium in body it shows excellent concentration and juiciness on the palate, with notable length, fine tannins and a long finish. With some air it put on considerable weight and I preferred its overall balance to that of the single-vineyard Raunate. A few years of bottle age will help smooth the youthful tannins, but this Brunello is pretty tasty right now. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2019.

Raspberry and licorice with hints of dried flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a lovely, bright finish. Best after 2007.

Offers currant, berries and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with lots of burnt fruit and raisin flavors. Ripe and rustic. Best after 2010.

Tightly packed and loaded with bright aromas of dried currants, cherry, cassis, wet earth and blue flower, this Brunello beautifully reflects it Tuscan roots. There's depth and dimension to the mouthfeel and the wine boats a vibrant personality overall.

The 2004 Brunello di Monalcino is a ripe, open Brunello loaded with dark fruit, leather and spices. The wine offers lovely richness and depth in an engaging, plump style. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

These structured and ample bodied examples of Sangiovese are perfect to drink young. Full of black cherry fruit, subtle hints of wood, and robust elegance.

Spectator suggested retail: $50. We beat that by $85 a case!Has lots of jammy blackberry character, with hints of nutmeg. Full-bodied, with jammy fruit and a round, fruity, raisiny finish. Concentrated yet stylish.
