Brunello di Montalcino ‘Vigna Raunate’, Mocali
Mocali chose their oldest vines (31 years old) from rich, mineral soils to produce this single cru bottling of Brunello di Montalcino. Whereas their base Brunello is fermented in stainless steel with aging in large oak cask, ‘Raunate’ is vinified and aged entirely in oak. Fermentation takes place in large French oak vats. Wine then ages for one year in tonneaux followed by 24 months in smaller oak barrels before resting in bottle for 7 months prior to release.
