Mocali Brunello di Montalcino 2015
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
"The Mocali 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers a robust and dark profile that is loaded tight with black cherry and plummy fruit with spice and tilled earth. Some pretty balsam herb appears as a light accent adding brightness and intensity. The tannins are tucked in there at the back, showing silky texture over a medium-weight finish." Monica Larner Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93 points Drink 2023-33
The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino presents a bouquet that leads with subtle cherry, strawberry, and hints of cedar, opening over time to show an alluring mix of sweet spice, dusty florals and air-dried meats. Soft textures contrast savory spice and woodland berries, yet the 2015 remains creamy, as red fruit coasts across the senses, guided by brisk acids and minerals. The finish is medium in length, with brisk acids tugging at the senses, and hints of tannin that resonate under a pretty display of lingering floral tones.
Concentrated and dense, delivering black cherry, blackberry, tar and iron flavors, backed by massive tannins that leave a dusty impression on the finish. Best from 2024 through 2038. 4,580 cases made, 1,600 cases imported.
Tilled soil, leather and mocha aromas emerge from the glass. The firm palate offers sour cherry, clove and dried sage alongside raspy tannins. Drink after 2023.
