Antonio Galloni rates this as the best Rosso di Montalcino ever from Uccelliera - above even the brilliant 2007 - and we have to agree.  Give it a swirl and it smells like very good Brunello, with intense scents of dark cherry, leather, smoke and dark flowers.  On the palate, it's a terrific marriage of the best of Rosso - medium bodied, transparent, fresh - with gusty Brunello flavors of ripe fruit, leather, spice, flowers and more. The wine finishes with muscular (but very ripe) tannins and a lash of juicy acidity as the fruit keeps on flowing. Tempting with a decant and food right now, but this is a Rosso that will really blossom with a year or two in cellar and drink through the early 2020s easily.

“The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino captures the essence of this site rich in clay and limestone, where the wines are ample and broad in style. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, lavender and spice notes blossom in a resonant Rosso loaded with personality. Readers who want to explore the Uccelliera wines should start here; this is a fabulous showing from Andrea Cortonesi.”  Antonio Galloni 91 points
