Uccelliera, Brunello di Montalcino, 2016

$79.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.
Uccelliera was part of Ciacci Piccolomini up until 1986 when it was purchased by some of the winemakers who worked under the family. A modern style of winemaking, the wines are aged in small barrels, both new and old, resulting in a richer riper style of Brunello, one that may attract those who are big fans of California Cabernet but also those who are big fans of Brunello’s beauty. The beauty of this wine is that you are able to get a wine that blends new and old styles seamlessly.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 96
"The Uccelliera 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dark fruit and wild cherry with warmer tones of cured tobacco, spice and potting soil. It shows the extra density, darkness and richness that comes so beautifully to fruit grown on the sun-drenched southern side of Castelnuovo dell'Abate in the southern half of the appellation. What Uccelliera delivers so carefully, vintage after vintage, is a truly exceptional sense of mouthfeel with textural richness and lingering creaminess. It is also one of the wines that consistently shows a sense of place. This is a touchstone estate for this specific Montalcino microclimate." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 95
"Burly tannins put a grip on the black cherry, black currant, plum, earth and tobacco flavors in this dense version, yet it's also vibrant, building to a lingering finish. All the components are in the right place, so this should come together nicely over time."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 88
"Aromas of baked plum, French oak and forest floor lead the nose on this robust red. The aromas follow over to the densely concentrated, one-dimensional palate along with licorice and roasted coffee bean. Tightly knit, close-grained tannins provide firm support while the heat of evident alcohol dominates the finish and throws it off balance." -Kerin O'Keefe
