100% sustainably farmed Sangiovese Grosso. Only made in 5 star vintages, this Riserva is delicious, balanced incredible value compared to the likes of other high end winerys. To make this sublime riserva, Mocali grapes from its oldest vines. After a cold soak and long primary fermentation in stainless steel, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in wood to add richness and structure. Then the wine ages 4 years in French oak to produce a rich, luscious wine that unfolds in layers of complexity.

Wine EnthusiastRipe berry, sunbaked earth, cured meat and grilled herb are some of the aromas that meld together in the glass. The juicy, delicious palate offers layers of juicy Morelllo cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon, licorice and tobacco. Hearty, velvety tannins provide the framework and lend a smooth texture. Drink 2018-2030.

Wine AdvocateOf all the wines presented by Mocali from both the 2011 and the 2010 vintages, this wine is the most unique. The bouquet of the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is noticeably different from the wines made from the Vigna delle Raunate cru. There's more dusty earth, terracotta and crushed mineral in this sharply delineated wine. Beyond those characteristics are dark aromas of black fruit and spice. This is a determinedly masculine and muscular wine from a very powerful vintage.
