Tasting Notes

"The Voliero 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a very pretty expression with dark fruit and an impressive sense of purity and primary fruit authenticity. At its core, you will encounter savory tones of spice, tobacco and leather. The bouquet also offers those beautifully polished Sangiovese-driven aromas of licorice, blue violets and balsam herb. The mouthfeel is succulent and rich. This is a very respectable Brunello that should age forward for at least ten years."

The Producer

Voliero

Andrea Cortonesi has always been a 'secret weapon' producer for us: The demand for his wines have gone through the roof in recent years. This is due to his exemplary winemaking and a string of rave reviews. Already the founder, proprietor and winemaker of the famed Uccelliera estate, in 2006 he started his own restaurant called Il Casato. It was in his capacity as restaurateur that today's label, 'Voliero' was born as the house pour. A true food-wine!

Patrons and the industry quickly took note and wanted Voliero bottles for their own cellars. Voliero wines are now sourced from higher elevation vineyards, and show a more elegant, refined side of Sangiovese. They are a wonderful contrast to the richer, more muscular wines Andrea makes at Uccelliera.

Andrea Cortonesi is undeniably one of the best producers in Montalcino. We've had the great pleasure of tasting today's wine many times over its evolution. From barrel years ago, to recently from the bottle, it has always been astounding.

This 2019 Rosso di Montalcino is 100% Sangiovese and spends far less time aging in oak relative to its Brunello siblings however, it's no slouch. It has enough depth and power that it could be mistaken for a Brunello, until you see its price tag.
