Mocali Brunello di Montalcino
About This Wine
Intense ruby red color, slightly garnet. On the palate it is slightly tannic, warm, aromatic, and persistent. On par in prestige as the Chianti Classico, the Brunello di Montalcino is known as the "little dark one".
About This Winery
Founded in 1956 by Dino Ciacci, the Mocali farm has a rich history in Montalcino. Before the fame that Montalcino has now, Dino Ciacci and 24 other winemakers started the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium with a shared belief that the terroir in Montalcino was exceptional for growing Sangiovese. The diversified farm grew grain and olives alongside its grapes until a frost decimated the olive trees in Montalcino. Dino's grandson and wife, Tiziano and Alessandra, replaced the olive groves with vines and began producing Brunello.
Today, Tiziano and Alessandra run the farm with their daughter, Pamela, and keep with the traditional style of winemaking.
Red meat, wild game, grilled meat, truffles.
Deep aromas of dark fruits, red berries, leather, soil, and cinnamon.
