    Uccelliera

    About Uccelliera

    Hailing from a family of sharecroppers from Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Andrea Cortonesi worked for numerous producers, most notably Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona, until he acquired the Uccelliera farm in 1986 to strike out on his own. In fact, the Uccelliera estate was once part of the Ciacci estate until Andrea’s acquisition. Credited with production of the famed 1988 and 1990 vintages of Ciacci that propelled it into the global limelight, Andrea can count himself as one of Monica Larner’s favourite Brunello producers.

    “If anyone embodies the amazing growth of Brunello di Montalcino that person is Andrea.”
    Monica Larner (Wine Advocate)

    Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2008 (6x75cl)
    Inc. VAT: £905.27
    2008

    Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2008 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (82)

    Black cherries, smoke, leather and licorice meld together in Uccelliera's 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. The flavors are dark and heavy throughout. Sadly, the 2008 Riserva is already oxidized and will never be in balance. The 2008 spent 42 months in oak, far too long for its inherent structure. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

    2012

    Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (90+)

    Good full red. Red cherry, violet and allspice on the nose. Aromas of blackberry syrup, balsamic oils, licorice and tar. Fat and ripe on entry, then tough and austere in the middle, showing tobacco and herb nuances and not much fruit in the mouth. The broad finish offers a noteworthy tannic spine and a restrained sweetness of fruit. A big, structured wine that will likely need more time, but this is tough going right now. 15% alcohol.

    2016

    Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (97)

    Rich and deeply alluring, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva wafts up to display crushed ashen stone mixed with hints of ginger, dusty florals and black cherry preserves. This is velvety-smooth and pliant in feel, lifted by cooling herbal and mineral tones, as an opulent wave of ripe red and black fruits washes across the palate, leaving a staining of minerals and spice in its wake. It’s long and structured, in need of further time to come fully into focus, yet somehow the 2016 Riserva remains completely fresh, tapering off to inner earth tones and hints of blueberry. Time will reveal further depths. This is an utterly classic Uccelliera Brunello in the making.
