Fabulous aromas of blackberries, Chinese mushrooms, violets and stones. A touch of toasted oak, too. Full body and powerful tannins, yet this remains polished and balanced. Seamless and endless finish. Such great depth and complexity. Needs two or three years more of bottle age. Open in 2020. Oct 2015, JamesSuckling.com
Founded in 1986 by Andrea Cortonesi, Ucceliera’s wines are stylistically more forward, deeper and richer than many. Andrea himself has been working the land in Montalcino since he was a boy and is passionate about his vines, his winery and the end product and is a man with a clear mission to make what he believes to be the best.
The estate is found in Castel Nuovo del Abate to the south of Montalcino and covers roughly six hectares. Vineyard management is impeccable, and as natural as possible; in the winery the wines see both large oak casks and barriques and Andrea sees the potential of both. The wines are lovely, with a distinct richesse – Antonio Galloni describes the estate as“without question one of the handful of top producers in Montalcino”
