"Andrea Cortonesi of Uccelliera shows real talent when it comes to highlighting vintage variation in his wines. His 2015 Brunello di Montalcino captures the exuberance and the ebullience of this sunny and warm growing season. However, the wine remains orderly, precise and very elegant nonetheless, with a pretty succession of aromas that play cautiously forward, building in intensity along the way. Dried currant and cherry cede to moist earth, rose petal and balsam herb. The wine's medium-weight body is supported by fresh acidity and well-managed tannins (with 36 months of oak aging). All of these moving pieces work in harmony."

"The 2015 Uccelliera Brunello has impressed me every single time I’ve tasted it. And I’ll admit, it was one of the wines I had been waiting for. It’s a deep ruby in color but sports that iodine colored ring at the rim of the bowl. Huge aromas of crushed cherry, fresh flowers, new leather and pipe tobacco. Just amazing. Flavors carry through from the nose and are ripe, concentrated, persistent, juicy and fresh. An amazing wine that will last a decade or more in the cellar."
