‘The 2017 Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino is a simply fantastic release. Displaying wonderful class and refinement, this opens to inviting aromas of sweet red berries, dried cherries, leather, dried herbs and spices all developing in the glass.This medium-bodied red is beautifully structured around silky tannins and possesses lovely inner-depth along with a round inviting texture through the finish. This is already showing remarkably well and could offer a decade long drinking window. An absolutely fabulous Rosso in this vintage.” 92 Points, International Wine Report

Raboso Piave is the finest indigenous vine of the Treviso district, one of the few native varieties of Veneto to survive the invasion of phylloxera that destroyed Europe’s viticulture in the late 1800s. The wine it produces has a dry, austere taste, fairly hard and sharp. It is aged in casks that blend and heighten the fragrances and flavours of the vine with the pleasant tones of oak. Ready to be drunk from its third year, this wine can be aged for several years. It is ideal served with spit-roasted and white meats, game, roasts and ripe cheeses.

Vineyard and stages of cultivation: The vineyard consists of old vines grown in Casarsa, is located in the municipality of Tezze di Piave on an alluvial soil, consisting of carry-gravel of the river Piave. In the vineyard of the interventions are performed to improve the production characteristics of the vines and the quality of the grapes, for example: you select the shoots in spring, leaving only those that are best placed on the plant and in summer you remove the leaves that cover the clusters to improve the accumulation of substances in the skins and colors late summer, in September, it reduces the number of clusters on the lil screws to improve the accumulation of sugars in the berries. Only when the grapes have reached a slight over-ripeness can be collected, which is done manually.
