"The 2012 Brunello Riserva from Uccelliera is a total beauty, and as compelling as any wine I have ever tasted from Andrea Cortonesi. This instantly opens to simply striking aromatics of dark cherries and red plums along with white truffle, florals, exotic spices, leather and hints of cured meat all soaring from the glass. On the palate this is medium to full-bodied and beautifully polished with a gorgeous seamless, velvety mouthfeel. It is impeccably balanced, with wonderful finesse and precision through the long, graceful finish. This Brunello is nothing short of sensational, and although already drinking extremely well, it should continue to provide pleasure for many years to come."

1 x 700 ml
This is a unique Cognac in that this used to be the Cognac of choice that the Delamain family reserved for themselves, and for their guests. It is an unblended, single estate, single cask Cognac a unique find in the world of Cognacs. This Cognac has benefitted from maximum barrel ageing, and with natural reduction which has dropped to 43% alcohol. From one cask to another, the Cognac changes, but is always a Cognac of unmatched purity. In general, the bouquet is powerful and long with floral notes, a rarity in older Cognacs. The palate is round and reveals rich fruit.
