    Description

    Voliero is another estate from Andrea Cortonesi, this time from the cooler northern slopes of Montalcino. The wines from Volerio are more refined and eleant, sometimes almost Burgundian in their silken texture. The Rosso is 100% Sangiovese from 15-25 year old vines grown in clay soils. Cold maceration with the skins at 10-12 degrees Celsius (the number of days depends on the characteristics of the grapes). Fermentation in steel with temperature control for 18/20 days. “Voliero is made from one of the most prestigious vineyards on the northern side of Montalcino. As such, it provides a fascinating contrast to Cortonesi’s wines from Uccelliera, which of course come from the southern part of the zone.” – The Wine Advocate

    What The Critics Say
    "The 2020 Rosso di Montalcino pulls you close to take in its spicy mix of wild herbs, white pepper, rosehips and zesty sour cherries. This gains a smoky sweetness the longer it sits in the glass. In textbook Voliero style, a wave of salty minerality greets you on the palate, followed by silky textures and tart wild berry fruits. It impresses with its vivacity and cheek-puckering tension, tapering off with purple-tinged florals, lightly structured and remarkably fresh. There's no rush here, as the 2020 could use a little time to unwind. Drink: 2021-2026"

    ABOUT THIS BRAND

    Voliero

    Andrea Cortonesi of Uccelliera is the mastermind behind the Voliero project. A combination of miniscule production and incredible global demand leads to annual shortages of his Rosso and Brunello. In fact, over the last few years he has not even been able to stock his own trattoria, located steps away from the Piazza del Campo in Siena. Andrea sources the fruit from a trusted friend growing beautiful Sangiovese in northern Montalcino. While the compact soils and cooler climate near Montosoli gives a more austere expression than that of Castelnuovo dell’Abate (the warm climate location of Uccelliera), Voliero has all the pedigree and depth of the beloved Ucc’ estate. The tannins on Voliero are as soft and approachable as its southern counterpart with bursts of mouth-watering acidity on its long finish. “Voliero is made from one of the most prestigious vineyards on the northern side of Montalcino. As such, it provides a fascinating contrast to Cortonesi’s wines from Uccelliera, which of course come from the southern part of the zone.” – The Wine Advocate
