Mocali Brunello di Montalcino 2012
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorA dense, powerful red, evoking eucalyptus, wild rosemary, sage and dried cherry flavors. Tense and linear, with freshness, persistence and a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2035.
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a steady and tight interpretation with wild aromas of underbrush, white cherry, grilled herb, licorice and spice. The ensemble is balanced and fresh. This Brunello offers a thin and compact mouthfeel that could fall short in the future. For that reason, I would suggest a more immediate drinking window. You don't need to wait in order to enjoy this wine.
Wine EnthusiastEarthy aromas of underbrush, used leather, violet and game lead the nose while the straightforward palate offers juicy red cherry, clove and a saline note. Supple tannins and fresh acidity give it an approachable framework. Drink 2018-2024.
