Mocali, Morellio di Scansano
Sangiovese Stunner For All Year Round
March 13, 2011
LIMITED QUANTITIES
What a wine! Morellino is the best kept secret for all you Chianti, Brunello and Super Tuscan fans.
    Morellino is the local name given to the Sangiovese grape grown in the hilly Tuscan village of Scansano. What is great about this wine is that it has the richness and body of delicious Brunello, the nuance of a Super Tuscan and the wonderful acidity of Chianti. The best news is that Morellino doesn't cost nearly as much as its more famous cousins. The best value we've seen from this region is the 2008 Mocali Morellino di Scansano. This delicious versatile red has ripe blackberry and mineral notes with a nose of violets and dark berries. It is full-bodied and well-structured, intense, and quite elegant all at the same time. Rich, with a hint of dark chocolate, creme de mure, cassis, plum, cherry and black raspberry, it offers great mineral notes and a long, silky smooth finish.
    This is a terrific expression of a great value out of Tuscany; it is a wine that you'll want in your cellar for everyday enjoyment! This all year round wine can be enjoyed with grilled meat or chicken, pasta, hearty salads and cheese of any kind.

Summary

Soft and juicy, this Italian gem is a delicious and versatile great value. An all year round wine, Mocali can be enjoyed with grilled meat or chicken, pasta, hearty salads and cheese of any kind. Intense purple with hints of ruby, this wine is loaded with lush black currant and black cherry layered over supple tannins and notes of tobacco and espresso. Enjoy this youthful yet hearty wine over the next four years.
