Like his previous releases, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows an uncanny sense of continuity and consistency with past releases. This steady stylistic focus is one of the best reasons to buy Uccelliera Brunello. The wine is dark and rich in appearance.

2012 Daniel Ricci "Terre del Timorasso" Colli Tortonesi Timorasso

This is white wine for a red wine drinker. There is so much concentration and depth of flavor, intensity, complexity, and downright deliciousness here, you'll have a hard time ever sipping on a light quaffing white wine ever again. Made from 100% Timorasso, a rare Piedmontese varietal grown in the Tortonesi hills near the Lombardy border, this wine's richness comes from extended skin and lees aging. Though not quite an orange wine, this can stand up to more substantial fare than your typical white.

2012 Gianfranco Alessandria "San Giovanni" Barolo

Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of dark cooking spice, menthol, dark-skinned berry and a balsamic note open. The firmly structured palate is less expressive, showing unripe cherry, licorice and a note of white pepper alongside brooding tannins. (KO)" (10/2016)

2012 Ettore Germano "Cerretta" Barolo

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of ripe berry, brown cooking spice and a whiff of espresso lead the nose on this full-bodied red. The firmly structured palate offers juicy raspberry, black cherry and licorice alongside a backbone of assertive but noble tannins. Drink 2020 - 2032" (2/2017) Jancis Robinson: "Light bricky ruby. Refined red fruits and finely fragrant. Bone dry and super-fine tannins. Firm and spicy on the finish but still extremely elegant, the tannins a little chalky now. Mouth-wateringly fresh finish.

2012 Murgo Brut Rosé Spumante Sicily

(ID)" (4/2016) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Nerello Mascalese grapes harvested for this wine underwent twenty-four hours of skin contact, imparting a pale salmon color and delicate flavors of red berries underlined by a fine minerality. Polished and elegant, it has the concentration t ...Read More »

2012 Graci "Arcuria" Etna Rosso

93 points James Suckling: "Lots of sweet strawberry character on the nose and palate. Very pure. Full body, soft, silky tannins and a long, intense finish. Loads of flavor but lively and tangy. Drink or hold." (10/2014) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of wild berry, crushed violet, leather, menthol and a whiff of lightly toasted oak waft from the glass. The savory but refined palate delivers juicy wild cherry, black raspberry, ground white pepper, licorice, sage and a mocha note alongside chewy tannins. It's structured but elegant, with a mineral-driven finish. (KO)" (4/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is no mistaking the 2012 Et ...Read More »
