Tasting Notes

"The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is cool-toned and remarkably pretty, scents of fresh wild herbs and peppery florals giving way to crushed woodland berries and a contrasting flourish of blood orange. Its textures are like pure silk, energized by zesty acidity and becoming quite spicy over time, as tart cherry-berry flavors and saline-minerals saturate deeply. Grippy tannins come forward through the licorice-tinged finale as this tapers off slightly structured, almost salty and remarkably fresh. The 2017 possesses all of the traits of a classic Voliero Brunello, and it's only in the slightly gruff tannins that you find any mark of the warm, dry vintage. This is exceptional."

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.
