Region : Italy (Italy), Tuscany (Italy)
Bottle Per Case : 6 x 750 ml
"Fabulous aromas of blackberries, Chinese mushrooms, violets and stones. A touch of toasted oak, too. Full body and powerful tannins, yet this remains polished and balanced. Seamless and endless finish. Such great depth and complexity. Needs two or three years more of bottle age. Open in 2020."
98 points - James Suckling, Oct 2015
Top 100 Italian Wines of 2016 - James Suckling
"The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a dark, brooding and powerful wine. It shows immediate richness and evident complexity with spice, tobacco, cured meat and dried blackberry or plum. This a gorgeous wine that is only at the beginning of a long aging evolution. This wine is absolutely impeccable on all levels. It delivers stunning intensity, power, integrity and balance. The aromatic momentum continues to grow and becomes steadily more expansive and complete as the wine takes on more air in the glass. I was absolutely blown away by this Riserva. It confirms my conviction that Andrea Cortonesi is one of Brunello's most talented winemakers. I suggest waiting five years or more before opening this bottle."

'Andrea Cortonesi reflects the best of the artisan spirit in Montalcino. The Uccelleria wines are rich, layered and beautifully textured.' – Antonio Galloni
'Without a shadow of a doubt, Andrea Cortonesi of Uccelliera lands high on my list of favorite Brunello di Montalcino producers.'” – The Wine Advocate
The Uccelliera estate was at once part of neighbouring Ciacci Piccolomini until 1986, when winemaker Andrea Cortonesi purchased it from his friends and former employers. After refining his trade as cellar master for Ciacci, Andrea ventured out on his own with the formation of Uccelliera. His first vintage was 1991 with the production of a mere 500 bottles!
The wines have quickly become cult favourites amongst the cognoscenti. Tucked away in the southeast corner of the appellation in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, the soil here is loose and stony which when coupled with a warm microclimate gives the wines of Uccelliera a rich and ripe expression, vintage after vintage. Andrea Cortonesi is tireless in his approach to winemaking, with all vineyard work done exclusively by hand. In addition to Brunello, the Rosso di Montalcino is a very limited production and features an unusually powerful nose and ripe, rich fruit. Rounding out the lineup is the tiny-production Super Tuscan, 'Rapace', which is a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet and aged in barrique.
