60% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet barrique-aged blend. The Rosso is highly limited in production, featuring an unusually powerful nose, and lush, soft fruit, while the Brunello features complex aromas of exotic spice and dark red fruits with an expansive palate and velvety texture.
The Uccelliera estate, located in the warm southern Castelnuovo dell'Abate part of the Montalcino zone, was part of the neighboring Ciacci Piccolomini estate until 1986. Proprietor Andrea Cortonesi recently added two hectares adjacent to Ciacci's famous "Pianrosso" vineyard; the property now totals six hectares. All work in the vineyard is done by hand.
