Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Station Plaza Wine
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a dark and brooding Sangiovese that flaunts its depth, sophistication and balanced weight. The fruit is thick and powerful, and the wine's textural richness is polished and beautiful. The wine goes through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and then ages in both small and large oak vessels for three years. Only 7,000 bottles were made.
Underbrush, scorched earth, Mediterranean brush, French oak and balsamic aromas slowly take shape. The hearty, rather forward palate offers fading -cherry, tobacco and baking spice alongside chewy integrated tannins. Drink from 2020-2027.
