MOCALI 2010 "I PIAGGIONI" ROSSO DI TOSCANA MONTALCINO

Named for the Tuscan term for the escarpments common in the area, this is a deep, dark, ruby-red wine. I Piaggioni has important aromas of sweet oak on the nose, balanced with ripe fruit, chocolate and vanilla. On the palate it is round with good intensity; notes of fruit and wood are equally displayed with a touch of liquorice on the finish.
Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are carried out in stainless steel. The wine is aged 8 months in tonneaux, of which 30% are new, 30% 1-year-old, and 30% 2-year-old, followed by 8 months in the bottle before release.

The Mocali estate, acquired by the Ciacci family (distant relations to Ciacci Piccolomini) in the 1950s, is a setting of natural Tuscan beauty where vineyards and olive groves alternate with oak and pine forests. This harmony of man and nature comes through in the delicious, ripe and balanced wines produced here, available at prices that are incredibly low when compared to those of the more established producers of Montalcino. The wines are particularly approachable when young, well-structured with ample body and an elegant, minerally character distinct to this growing area. The Rosso "I Piaggioni" is one of the best values on the market - simply delicious Sangiovese at an excellent price.
