Mocali's Brunello is produced from 100% Sangiovese grown in the Galestro soils of south-west Montalcino. Its macerated for 28 days and fermented in stainless steel. Then aged in a combination of 550 liter tonneaux and 225 liter barrique for 24 months. The particularly cool and windy vineyards yield a racy and vibrant Brunello that's loaded with ripe fruit and great depth.

Ripe and round, exuding cherry, raspberry, oolong tea and underbrush flavors. The tannins are dense, leaving a dusty feel on the finish. A modern style. Best from 2016 through 2028. 4,416 cases made.

Opening aromas suggest underbrush, bay leaf, meat juices, plum and raisin. These carry over to the palate along with sour cherry, white pepper, cinnamon and espresso. Firm, drying tannins mark the close.
