Tonight's wine I have chosen was inspired by a reading from Eric Asimov recently that I wanted to try. The 2016 Uccelliera Rosso di Montalcino is a 100% Sangiovese wine.
On the nose I am finding notes of cherry, strawberry, plum, blackberry, leather, roses and spice.
The palate brings notes of cherry, strawberry, plum, cracked black pepper, spice, clay pot and a mild oak.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity and medium + rounded tannins that moves smoothly into a medium to medium long fruit finish. Let's all have a great week and make the best of a bad situation. Please be safe and take proper precautions. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a year ago
Excellent. High QPR. #doloresoutpost Pop and pour and enjoy for a couple of hours. Or cellar and revisit along the way for another 10 years. — 3 months ago

As a Super Tuscan, a bit on the fruity side, not okay or too full bodied... — 2 years ago
