Press & Reviews
Pronounced aromas of sandalwood, cloves and chocolate, layered on top of dried fruit and dried mushrooms. Some soy sauce notes. This is a full-bodied red with firm, dusty tannins. Slightly one-dimensional at the finish. Better 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.
