Dino Ciacci, the founder of the Mocali estate, was one of the 25 vignerons who, in 1967, founded the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino. Today Mocali is owned and managed by Tiziano and Alessandra Ciacci, Dino's grandchildren, who live on the estate. Tiziano manages the vineyards and winemaking, as he has since the 1980s. Mocali follows a traditional style of winemaking, and their Brunello has a formidable reputation worldwide as being both approachable and age-worthy. This is Mocali's esteemed flagship wine: it ferments in stainless steel and ages for a year in Slavonian oak before being transferred to large French oak casks for an additional two years. Rich plum and black cherry flavors are accented by notes of pine and dried herbs, with nice tannin structure to back it all up. Sustainably grown.
