Learn About the Region & Winemaker

Uccelliera
The winery was founded in 1987 by Andrea Cortonesi with land purchased from the famed Ciacci Piccolomini estate where Cortonesi was a winemaker for many years. It is located in Caste Inuovo de ll'Abate in the southeast corner of Montalcino appellation. The soil here is loose and stony which, when coupled with a warm microclimate, gives the wines of Uccelliera a rich and ripe expression. 

 

Uccelliera, Brunello di Montalcino
"In a series of vintages with their own challenges, 2012 for the drought and heat, 2014 for its damp coolness, 2013 was extremely regular. No excessive heat, no deluge. It was a very good harvest, but I chose not to make riserva. The wines are elegant and express the terroir of Montalcino in a classic way." - Andrea Cortonesi

 

Wine Advocate 94
"I never have enough praise for the excellent work achieved at Uccelliera. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is another proud notch in Adra Cortonesi's belt. This is a fine and elegant wine that wraps smoothly over the palate. It also has an immediate and accessible personality which means you don't need to wait too long to enjoy it."
