Elegant and well-balanced, powerful, but clean and smooth and a dynamic rising finale. Try with grilled and roasted red meats, game, aged cheeses. A wine for an important occasion.
Always a knockout Brunello, Uccelliera's 2006 Riserva seems on the ripe side, with jammy fruit aromas and savory beef jerky notes at the back. The firmness and natural acidity associated with Sangiovese is present, but the aromas show hints of candied fruit and spicy plum cake.
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva flows with the essence of dark cherries, blackberries, flowers, violets, licorice and spices, all supported by firm, structured tannins. The 2006 boasts striking inner perfume, big fruit and a huge, explosive finish. The 2006 Riserva is surprisingly vibrant, focused and balanced for such a big wine. The Riserva was made from the estate's highest altitude vineyards and aged one year in barrique and a second year in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
