The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino slowly comes to life in the glass with a dark array of steeped plums, lavender and crushed rocks. It's silky, almost creamy, in texture, with ripe red and black fruits complemented by sweet inner herbal tones and brisk acidity. The 2018 finishes structured and powerful, yet balanced, as a collection of minerals adds a crunchy sensation under an air of violet-tinged inner florals. Mocali did a fine job of integrating the exotic qualities of the vintage with their house style. Well done.

Savory and herbaceous, the 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino offers heady aromas of fresh leather, dried black cherry, balsamic, and toasted cedar. It is medium to full-bodied, with dark fruit and earth tones of turned soil, saline, cherry pit, plum pit, tea leaf, and medicinal herbs. Drink 2025-2030.

A dense, slightly rustic red, with burly tannins dominating plum, cherry, tamarind paste, earth and iron flavors. Manages to show fruit under those broad shoulders and isn't overly astringent, so give this a few years to integrate (or decant now). Best from 2026 through 2042.

This Brunello shows a medium-thick garnet appearance and aromas that feel faded by time. The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is dark in character with black fruit and dried rose. I did not get much pleasure from the very dry tannins on this.
