Situated to the southwest of Montalcino at an altitude of 300-350 meters above sea-level on the slopes facing Castiglione del Bosco, the Mocali estate is comprised of 32 hectares, 5 of which are Sangiovese grosso vineyards, and 4 dedicated to olive groves. The soil is rendered highly mineral; salt owing to the presence of marl and limestone. Acquired by the Ciacci family in the 1950s, the estate 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.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna delle Raunate shows even more depth compared to the successful 2011 interpretation of this single-vineyard Brunello. The bouquet is finely etched and linear with a steady presentation of aromas that include dark fruit, forest berry, black currant, spice, cola and licorice. The nose shows immediate clarity and focus. Added complexity is delivered in the form of slightly evolved aromas thanks to the long years of aging required of Brunello. The finish is firm and fresh.

VinousDark, virile and imposing, Mocali's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna delle Raunate is a big wine built on a firm spine of tannin and acidity. Sweet black cherries, smoke, melted road tar and licorice hit the palate in an explosive, wild Brunello that will benefit from at least a few years in the cellar. I very much like the sense of energy and intensity that underpins the finish. In short, there is a lot to like.

James SucklingA red with lots of earth, terracotta, rust and dark fruit character. Full body, bright acidity and a fresh finish. Fairly linear in structure but shows outstanding intensity. Better in 2016.

Wine SpectatorEucalyptus and wild herb aromas and flavors mark this lean, vibrant red, which is tannic, with the fruit returning on the long aftertaste. Still, it's stingy. Best from 2017 through 2030. 500 cases made.
