Progetto Mocenni with the strength of Lots n° 89 e n° 91, has given life to two beautiful solo voices which, with different timbres, characteristics and tones describe the same area, made by nature ideal for highest quality.
Denomination: IGT Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon
Grape Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vineyards: The parcel 91, located on the Mocenni estate, near Vagliagli, in the townsip of
Castelnuovo Berardenga, one of the most fortunate positions in Tuscany. The terrain is rich in
Galestro and Alberese stones, ideal for grapevines. South, Southeast exposure. Altitude 450
meters / 1500 feet.
Soil: Alberese and Galestro stones; sand 33%, clay 33%, silt 33%
Vinification and aging: Fermentation in stainless steel vats; maceration for circa 20 days
at a controlled temperature of 28-30°C. Shortly after alcoholic fermentation the wine is
transferred into barriques of French oak where malolactic fermentation takes place and where
it is subsequently aged for 24 months. Once bottled, the wine remains for a further year stored
in the cellar for refinement prior to release.
Tasting notes: intense ruby red colour. On the nose coffee, hazelnut, incense, liquorice. An
impressive tannin structure, suitable for prolonged aging. Remains in the mouth at length
thanks to a proper acidic component, well balanced with the tannin. This wine, in its own unique
and unmistakable manner – like the Sangiovese in 89 – expresses the characteristic salinity and
minerality of the terrain. It maintains its characteristic properties and improves with aging.
Serving suggestions: Traditional accompaniments are red meat (both fresh and salted), game
and mature cheeses.
Serving temperature: 18°C. Open and decant at least 1 hour ahead of time.
ap legend: The name derives from the number the State has assigned to the land on which the vineyards producing this wine grow.
egend: Nicolò and Alessandra talked extensively and with excitement about whether Cabernet and Sangiovese would produce wines which were more linked to the territory than to their intrinsic characteristics. The discussion led to planting two different vineyards. The one who maintained predominance of territory was right, but for the sake of family peace we will not mention the name.
