Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Offers forthcoming aromas and flavors of blackberry, black currant, licorice, tobacco and vanilla backed by vivid acidity and dusty tannins, with a long, saline finish. Showing enough fruit and structure to absorb the oakiness over time, this is balanced overall and poised for a promising future. Best from 2026 through 2045. 800 cases made, 350 cases imported.
This has a shy nose that eventually reveals subdued aromas recalling espresso, toasted oak and baking spice. The dense, concentrated palate offers prune, clove and roasted coffee bean alongside assertive tannins and the heat of scorching alcohol.
