The Uccelliera 2014 Brunello di Montalcino exhibits the elegant and delicate side of this mighty Tuscan appellation. This vintage is characterized by mid-weight wines that are thinner in structure and less impactful in terms of overall intensity. However, there is a good argument to make that this softer approach is especially well-suited to a wine like Brunello that is never shy in terms of power. The vintage conditions in 2014 hold the wine back just a tad, and that restraint is welcome. From one of my absolute favorite Brunello producers, this wine is elegant and fine with bright fruit tones followed by sour cherry, licorice and dried rose bud. Some 11,300 bottles were made.

Deep ruby-red. Aromas and flavors of ripe dark cherry and spicy underbrush. Remarkably big and round, exuding notes of coffee, tobacco, ripe, sweet dark cherry and herbs; very enjoyable and very ripe, with greater definition and precision than many 2014 Brunellos from the southern reaches of the denomination.

Dry-wood and floral aromas with a wealth of red cherries. On the palate there’s a smooth array of bright red berries, delivered on nutty, supple and even-paced tannins. Drink in the next five years.
