I like this. Picked this up from Last Bottle in effort to expand my “everyday wine selection” while stuck at home. Despite the young age, this is drinking well now. Cherries and strawberries. Nice bright acidity. Soft tannins. Long finish. Glad I have a couple more to enjoy. This is one to enjoy now, not hold. — a day ago
Moderately saturated medium red. Strawberry, honey and flint on the nose and palate. Then fairly steely in the mouth, but boasting nice concentration and an appealing sweetness. Finishes broad and smooth, but I would have liked a little more length for an even higher score. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

First Brunello I really remember making an impression on me. Not super expressive on the nose but was drinking well at the time. Tannins were very silky. — 16 hours ago
First hit was good, goes towards the grippy olive. Because I had it with a lot of garlic and olive oil, I woke up the next morning craving wasabi of all things. — 8 days ago
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! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 19 days ago
No doubt about it opened too early, but I knew that ahead of time and this bottle wasn’t meant for the cellar. Not as good as the 2006 Altesino but no doubt would have been in another 5+ years. — 15 hours ago
I'm not sure I've had a wine evolve so much over the course of a 2 5 hr decant. Sharp vinegar > tart dark cherry > something punch you in mouth savory on the nose (cheese, mushroom, brioche?) > resembling integrated tannins and acid with white chocolate, espresso, licorice > back into predominant cherry, softer tannins, + tertiary notes. I dont know, an interesting ride and worth it. — 5 days ago
Vibrant red. Aromas of violet, red cherry and licorice on the nose. Trim and modestly built, but with very good acid-fruit-tannin balance and clean flavors of red cherry and herbs on the medium-long finish. I expect this to improve with a little bottle age. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)
