A rich, voluptuous wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth and richness. Mocha, espresso, licorice, new leather and cloves are all beautifully layered. The 2007 needs time for the tannins to soften and the oak to integrate, but it is quite pretty and very much in the style of the year. This is classic Uccelliera in its intensity, volume and sheer concentration. French oak shapes the wine and gives it plenty of texture without robbing it of its personality. Drink: 2015-2025 (Sep13)

In outstanding growing years, the term "RISERVA" is given to a wine rigorously selected from the oldest vineyards. This 100% Sangiovese is made from vineyards in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, at elevations of 150-350 metres on well-exposed hillslopes south-east of Montalcino. It is matured in Slavonian and French oak barrels for a minimum of 36 months to a maximum of 42 months.
