The Mocali estate is in a setting of natural Tuscan beauty, where vineyards and olive
groves alternate with oak and pine forest. This harmony of man and nature shines through
in the delicious and balanced wines available at prices that are extremely reasonable.
The vineyards are located just to the southwest of the town of Montalcino, on slopes facing
Castiglione del Bosco, planted in mineral-rich galestro soils of limestone with sand and clay.
Although the wines are prized for their approachability, we recently enjoyed a 1990 Brunello
that was absolutely stunning.
100% Ciliegiolo. "Ciliegiolo" means cherry in Italian. According to Jancis Robinson, Ciliegiolo is a parent of the noble Sangiovese. And the grapes roots are plainly on view in this fresh, raspy, deep cherry-flavored treat. Seldom seen as a varietal bottling, Mocali's Ciliegiolo more than holds its own. Delicious!
Colored and 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.
Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Marselan (a cross of Cabernet Sauvignon & Grenache!). 15% abv. Deep purple, extracted, Ripe berry nose, a big powerful blend with fine tannins that is right at home in its Bolgheri real estate. Practicing biodynamic. 2000 cases produced.
1990 Livio Sassetti
