    Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

    Andrea Cortonesi's Brunello di Montalcino 2016 is at its best right from the start. Here comes a Brunello of profound beauty, intensity and complexity. On the nose, a generous dose of primary fruit delights, primarily cherry and blackberry. This is joined by wonderfully balanced secondary aromas from the oak, reminiscent of spice, cinnamon and dark smoke. The palate explodes from the starting line ud deliver a steady pace throughout. Subtle notes of spice, cured meats and barbecue smoke add facets to the impressive finish. For us, it is one of the best representatives of the exceptional 2016 vintage! SUPERIORE.DE

    "Dark ruby red. Subtle nose of dried rose petal, rich cherries, a hint of tobacco. Opens balanced, velvety and soft on the palate, spreads richly over the tongue, clear ripe core fruit, elegant finish." Falstaff

    "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 Spectator

    "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

    "The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino blends richness, ripeness and refinement to create a model of total balance. At first, it’s dark, earthy and herbal; yet with time in the glass, a massive wave of black cherry, raspberry, sage and a grounding note of undergrowth comes forward. In the mouth, it coats all that it touches in silky, cool-toned textures, giving way to ripe red/black fruits complemented by spiced citrus, as nuances of lavender and tobacco form. While this feels round and pliant throughout, fine-grain tannins slowly saturate, sneaking up and reminding you of just how young the 2016 really is today. Hints of baker’s chocolate, licorice and a twang of tart blackberry resonate - wow, does it ever end?" Vinous

    "This is really beautiful with complex black cherry, berry, walnut and dark chocolate. Some mushroom and smoke. It’s tight and reserved with polished tannins and wonderful balance and finesse. Persistent and intense." James Suckling
