Mocenni Particella 91 IGT Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon

TENUTA MOCENNI

 

91_2014

One often hears that numbers are not opinions, but rather concrete facts. A first concrete fact is the exclusive provenance of this wine from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in the vineyards of parcel 91 on our Mocenni estate. A second concrete fact is the particular selection that has rendered this wine predominantly the expression of its terrain of origin, making it unique and unmistakable compared to any other Cabernet Sauvignon. A third concrete fact is the absolute quality of this wine, the intensity of its color, the bouquets it releases, the persistence it generates, the predisposition for prolonged ageing it displays. Numbers also have connotations of good luck: is 91 your lucky number, too?

 

Denomination: IGT Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon

Grape Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

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 stored in the cellar for
refinement prior to release.

Tasting notes: Intense ruby red colour. Incredible intense bouquet with notes of coffee,
hazelnut, incense, liquorice. An impressive tannin structure, suitable for long aging. It has
a long, persistent lingering. A good acidic component that is well balanced with the tannins.
This wine, in its own unique and unmistakable way expresses the characteristic salinity and
minerality of the terrain. An excellent expression of Cabernet Sauvignon in Chianti Classico
area of production.

Serving suggestions: Traditional accompaniments are red meat (both fresh and salted), game
and mature cheeses.
