Mocali Brunello di Montalcino 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Colored an intense, ruby red with garnet reflections, the Rosso di Montalcino has a finely intense nose with fragrant aromas of small, fresh fruits. On the palate it is delicately dry with aromatic, long-lasting flavors." -Winemaker's Notes

Tuscany, ItalyMocali Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful red wine gem from the much heralded 2010 Brunello vintage, scoring 90 points from James Suckling! Considered the king of Tuscan wines and one of the most renowned and long-lived red wines of Italy, Brunello is produced from a specific strain of Sangiovese (Sangiovese Grosso) grown in the unique microclimate surrounding the Tuscan town of Montalcino. The Mocali estate, acquired by the Ciacci family (distant relations to Ciacci Piccolomini) in the 1950s, is a setting of natural Tuscan beauty where vineyards and olive groves alternate with oak and pine forests. Situated to the southwest of Montalcino at an altitude of 300-350 meters above sea-level on the slopes facing Castiglione del Bosco, the Mocali estate is comprised of 32 hectares, 6 of which are specialized vineyards (5 hectares of Sangiovese grosso), and 4 dedicated to olive groves. Wine Spectator rated this wine 94 points!Mocali Brunello di Montalcino is intense ruby red in color, full in body with firm tannins and ripe fruit. This Brunello has a complex and balanced nose, showing aromas of raspberries and licorice 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. Made of 100% Sangiovese, the wine was aged for three years in large Slovenian oak casks. Well balanced to enjoy over the next 12-15 years as it improves with cellaring. Rich, long and complex on the finish.Enjoy Mocali Brunello di Montalcino with osso bucco, lasagna, eggplant Parmesan, and cheeses.

The mix of cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus and juniper flavors is focused, building to an excellent finish. This is well-structured and lingers on the earth- and mineral-laden finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 4,150 cases made.
