2013 Mocali Rosso di Montalcino

Winemaker's Notes:

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.  

Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel; malolactic fermentation is carried out in wood.  The wine is matured 11 months in large French-oak barrels called botti in Italian; after bottling it is cellared for rougly 7 months before release.

Wine Advocate 88 Points

Mocali's 2013 Rosso di Montalcino is a soft and luscious wine that delivers a twofold punch of red cherry fruit and spicy oak. It opens to a dark ruby color and compelling aromatic intensity. It doesn't offer much in terms of complexity, but it does offer a smooth ride of polished tannins and juicy fruit flavors. Tangy acidity gives a quick jolt to the palate. Drink this wine over the next 36 months.-ML
