Tasting Notes

"The nose was dark with violet floral tones, black cherry, dusty spices, leather and hints of savory herbs. On the palate, I found silky textures balanced by zesty acids with texturally-rich cherry and strawberry, sweet spices and minerals which all combined to form a beautifully balanced expression. It finished long with saturating dark berry fruits, spice, and fine tannin, yet it was energized by lingering acidity. I’ve liked this wine in the past, but in 2013 it has reached a whole new level."
96 points - Eric Guido, Season of Change, Feb 2018
"Bright red with a pale rim. Knockout aromas and flavors of spicy red cherry, licorice, cedar and aromatic herbs. Clean, ripe and round, with saline nuances lingering nicely on the smooth but very lively finish. A classic Brunello from Voliero."
94 points - Ian d'Agata, Vinous Media, April 2018

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.
