Mocali's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a fruit-forward wine with pronounced cherry, plum and red fruit tones. You might recognize candied raspberry or cough drop flavors as well. The bouquet offers good complexity with shades of spice, cured meat and white pepper that filter in as the wine settles in the glass. There is a distinct touch of sweetness, just a flash, that adds more weight and texture to the palate. The wine shows nicely integrated tannins. Production was capped at 10,000 bottles.
