"The mix of cherry, strawberry, eucalyptus and juniper flavors is focused, building to an excellent finish. This is well structured and lingers on the earth- and mineral-laden finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 4,150 cases made.—B.S."

Wine Advocate 92
"The quality and power of the vintage is immediately evident in Mocali's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Black cherry, pressed roses, wet earth and cigar box are important components of the forthcoming and generous bouquet. The wine is compact and tight at first, but it fleshes out nicely on the palate to reveal very attractive textural richness. Mocali has successfully interpreted this classic vintage. "

Vinous Media 90
"Mocali's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is an absolutely delicious wine with plenty of near-term appeal, especially if it is given some air to allow the tannins to unwind a bit. Smoke, sweet herbs, ripe black stone fruits and tobacco are laced throughout nicely in this aromatically open, high-toned Brunello. Pliant, open and highly expressive, yet with plenty of underlying substance, the 2010 is a gorgeous wine from Mocali." ~ AG

James Suckling 90
"A wine with beautifully ripe dark fruits. Full body, chewy tannins and a long flavorful finish. Needs time to open. Better in 2016. - jamesuckling.com (January 2015)"

" Intense ruby red in color, this Brunello has a complex and balanced nose, showing aromas of raspberries and liquorice with notes of chocolate and spice, varying from vanilla to cinnamon to coffee. Warm and full on the palate, the flavors are beautifully pronounced with excellent length.

Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel; malolactic fermentation follows in oak. The wine ages for three years in large Slovenian oak casks. ~ Winery notes
