Press & Reviews
This is a full-bodied red with juicy red plums, chocolate and bark. Some intriguing ginger and white-pepper notes, too. Lots of fine tannin. Slightly austere at the finish. Tarry undertones. Drink after 2023.
The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna delle Raunate from Mocali is the richer, darker and more oak-influenced wine of the portfolio. Crushed black cherries, brown sugar, cedar, sage and a hint of olive tapenade lift up from the glass. It boasts silky, elegant textures, offset by tart red/black berries laced with balsamic spices, as fine-grained tannins mount toward the close. Sour orange citrus and savory herbal tones help to further balance the expression, making for a structured yet fresh finale. In all honesty, I typically prefer the straight Brunello over the Raunate; but in 2016, Mocali created something very special here.
