2018 Uccelliera Rosso Di Montalcino

92  pts Jeb Dunnuck


    The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is noted by candied strawberry, fresh roses, and fennel. Fresh with bright red cherry and dried tea leaf, it offers a crisp structure, with lift and fine present tannins. If you enjoy more tension, the 2018 is perfect for early drinking 2021-2026.

    Located in Castelnuova dell’Abate, Uccelliera’s first vintage was in 1991. Andrea Cortonesi purchased the farmland in 1986, and he continues to operate the estate today. His philosophy is simply to respect the terrior and to hold a strong commitment to the sense of place. He believes in a homeopathic approach to viticulture, to observe, listen, and work together with nature. The property includes vineyard holdings in three areas that range from 150 to 350 meters in elevation. They utilize large Slavonian 40-hectoliter barrels as well as 225-liter French barrique.
