‘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
