    Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

    Uccelliera's elegant Brunello di Montalcino 2012 is among the best of the vintage. Cherries and spices in the vibrant bouquet, rounded off with hints of granite and menthol. On the palate, much dark fruit, great suppleness, silky tannins and remarkable balance. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Smooth berry nose, also notes of violet and sandalwood; in the mouth pithy, the tannins robust, has character and length. Perfectly balanced." Vinum

    "Aromas of walnuts and ripe fruit such as mature plums in combination with undertones of cedar. Full body, chewy tannins and spicy finish. Intense dried lemons. Burning spices. So much going on here. Such a complete and complex wine." James Suckling

    "I am always such a big fan of Andrea Cortonesi's work. Like his previous releases, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows an uncanny sense of continuity and consistency with past releases. This steady stylistic focus is one of the best reasons to buy Uccelliera Brunello. The wine is dark and rich in appearance. Fruit from this vintage was smaller than usual and Andrea jokes that during the 2012 growing season you could hardly call it "Sangiovese Grosso," the name of the Sangiovese clone used in Montalcino. It is normally characterized by larger berry size, but not in this warm and dry vintage. Fruit was concentrated and smaller instead. The wine's explosive flavor profile demonstrates this fact. Blackberry and dark fruit segues to spice, tobacco and balsam herb." Robert Parker

    "Medium ruby with bright orange rim. Brooding and rich on the nose. Tangy, full cherry palate with firm tannins. Can be approached now, even if the tannins are a little fierce for the moment. Enormous length. For those who like a richer style of Brunello." Jancis Robinson
