''This is a pure and vibrant yet silky effort that contrasts ripe berries with hints of sour citrus and savory spice. While packed full of zesty energy, it finishes classically dry and persistent.'' 91 Points, Vinous Media
Andrea Cortonesi's Uccelliera offers distinctive wines that reflect the characteristics of the Castelnuovo dell'Abate subzone in the southeast quadrant of the appellation. The vineyard is planted at various elevations spread across three tiers. The lower level at 150 metres above sea level sees heavier calcareous marl clay soils. The geology at 250 metres above sea level sees a mix of clay and sandy soils with a much larger presence of limestone and mineral. The highest vineyards at 350 metres above sea level consist of limestone Galestro rocks mixed into primarily clay soils.
'Masses of crushed raspberry, peppery florals and smoky mineral-earth tones create a bouquet that is impossible to ignore as the 2020 Rosso di Montalcino opens in the glass. This is a pure and vibrant yet silky effort that contrasts ripe berries with hints of sour citrus and savory spice. While packed full of zesty energy, it finishes classically dry and persistent, leaving notes of roses and cloves to linger.'' 91 Points, Vinous Media
