Mocali Fossetti Rosso Toscana 2015
100% Sangiovese Grosso fermented solely in stainless steel. This is a deep hearty glass of Tuscan wine with wonderful freshness of fruit. Made from all Montalcino fruit it's an incredible value from this zone. Sangiovese Grosso has thicker skins and smaller berries, yielding a more structured wine with deeper fruits, all that is present here with spiced aromas and dusty tannins. A wonderful introduction to the wines of Montalcino.
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.
