About

91

"A pretty Rosso di Montalcino that shows dark cherries, spices and dried herbs. Medium body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Drink now."

91 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino is a simple and straightforward wine that goes into wood for six months and into bottle for another four months before it hits the market. You get great value with a wine like this, which offers pristine primary fruit followed by grilled herb and moist potting soil. In all, you get all the best qualities of stripped down Sangiovese produced in a warm vintage. However, don't underestimate the wine's structure, because you do feel those integrated tannins at the back. The fruit is cheerful and bright. Bottle production is 24,800 units strong."

Product Description:

"The Uccelliera Rosso is highly limited in production, featuring an unusually powerful nose. This med-red colored wine is filled with aromas of crunchy dark cherries and black currants, compounded by smoky and tobacco notes. Pure and unctuous in the mouth with loads of fruit and glycerin. Finishes with balance and ripe tannins." Importer
