Tasting Notes: Blackberry, Plum, Leather, Tobacco
The Mocali estate was acquired by the Ciacci family in the 1950's and produces highly rated wines that are incredibly low in price when compared to those of the more established producers of Montalcino. Dino Ciacci, the founder of the Mocali estate, was one of the first group of 25 vignerons who, in 1967, founded the Corsorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. The consorzio now boasts over 200 producers. Mocali has always followed a traditional style of winemaking.
The Mocali Brunello is a dense and layered red that's full-bodied, structured, and well balanced with fresh acidity and firm tannins yet the texture feels velvety. The ripe palate delivers blackberry, plum, cherry, clove, tobacco, leather, earth, and ground pepper notes. May need a couple of years to settle down or some decanter time. Would pair with pasta in meat sauce or bbq ribs.
