2011 Uccelliera - Rosso di Montalcino



Wine Spectator  

Though firm, this is loaded with raspberry, cherry, leather and spice flavors. Vibrant and beautifully balanced, offering a lingering, juicy aftertaste of fresh fruit and tobacco. Drink now through 2020. 1,900 cases made. Bruce Sanderson

Wine Advocate  

The 2011 Rosso di Montalcino is striking. A round, seamless wine, the 2011 impresses for its voluptuous, caressing personality. Freshly cut roses, sweet red cherries, raspberries and spices blossom in a wine full of breadth, volume and richness. This is one of the best Rossos of the year. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019. 

Andrea Cortonesi reflects the best of the artisan spirit in Montalcino. The Uccelliera wines are rich, layered and beautifully textured. Cortonesi vinifies his plots in three major subdivisions, corresponding to the altitude of the vineyards on the slope. Partial aging in French oak gives these Brunellos from the southern Castelnuovo dell’Abate district additional warmth and richness. Readers who want to check out the Uccelliera wines might want to start with the Rosso or the Rapace, which is sublime in 2010, a great vintage for Montalcino. Antonio Galloni

International Wine Cellar  

Bright, deep red-ruby.  Black cherry, strawberry, bitter chocolate, violet and licorice on the nose, with a strong element of black pepper.  Sweet and creamy in the mouth, offering rich, savory flavors of dark red cherry and sweet spices.  Boasts excellent energy and finishes with terrific grip and length.  An almost decadent if less refined style of Rosso, but it's hard to argue with this wine's opulence. Ian D'Agata
