100% sustainably farmed Sangiovese Grosso. Only made in 5 star vintages, this Riserva is delicious, balanced incredible value compared to the likes of other high end winerys. To make this sublime riserva, Mocali grapes from its oldest vines. After a cold soak and long primary fermentation in stainless steel, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in wood to add richness and structure. Then the wine ages 4 years in French oak to produce a rich, luscious wine that unfolds in layers of complexity.

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a dark and richly extracted wine. The aromas are very ripe. I would argue too ripe, at least for my tastes. Candied cherry and blackberry confit segue to sweet baking spice and bitter chocolate. You also get whiffs of scorched earth, molasses and tangy Spanish cedar wood. This wine ages in oak for four years, and the wood influences add a succulent quality to the already sweet jammy fruit. The mouthfeel is richly textured with soft tannins and some bitterness on the close.
