Mocali Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Black licorice and blackberry aromas lead to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Offers an excellent depth of fruit. Needs a little time. Should develop beautifully. Best after 2012.
Mocali's Brunello Riserva offers a bright and buoyant bouquet of cherry, blackberry, spice, tobacco and dark chocolate. The wine is elegant, generous and balanced with a full but not overdone style.
The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva offers up sweet scents of pipe tobacco, cedar, spices and red cherries in a beautifully layered style. Fine, silky tannins frame a long, refined finish. This is one of the more mid-weight 2004 Riservas, and it should be approachable with a minimum of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.
