    Winemaker's Notes:

    Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino is an elegant and well balanced wine. The color is intense ruby red tending to garnet, and the nose is ample and fragrant with notes of leather, tobacco, berries and spices. It's a powerful, but clean and smooth wine that rises to a dynamic finish. Serve with roast and stewed red meat, game and aged cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Complex aromas of rose, blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with wonderfully velvety tannins and focused, juicy, rich fruit. Long and intense. The finish shows berry, tobacco, toasty oak, berry and chocolate. Goes on and on. One of the wines of the vintage. Best after 2011. 1,890 cases made.

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino is simply gorgeous in the way all of its elements come together. It’s hard to know where to start with this wine. Smoke, scorched earth, black cherries and wild herbs are all melded seamlessly in a Brunello loaded with flavor, personality and sheer character. The wine possesses formidable concentration and phenomenal length, with lingering notes of sweetness that round out the close. Uccelliera’s Brunello was impressive from cask, and it is just as impressive now that it is in bottle. Readers who have the opportunity to taste the wine at this young stage should not hesitate although a few years are needed before it blossoms fully. Simply put, this is the finest wine I have tasted from Andrea Cortonesi. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.

    This is among our favorite 2004 Brunellos. Winemaker Andrea Cortonesi who once said, "the best irrigation is sweat," has worked hard to craft this plush, modern and penetrating wine. It boasts a deep, dark concentration and a very beautiful bouquet of luscious blackberries, spice, black mineral and cola. It’s round and supple and shines simpatico.

    Good deep red with ruby highlights. Ripe nose combines currant, tobacco, chocolate and pungent spices. Silky-sweet and sappy, with an uncommonly suave texture and lovely floral lift. This really fills the mouth without leaving any impression of weight. The long, broad, rising finish sparkles with mineral dust. A superb example.
