2004 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1059478 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complex aromas of rose, blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, with wonderfully velvety tannins and focused, juicy, rich fruit. Long and intense. The finish shows berry, tobacco, toasty oak, berry and chocolate. Goes on and on. One of the wines of the vintage. *Top 100 Wines of 2009* (JS) Inner quote mark (4/2009)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of beef stock and hung meat with dried tomato, balsamic, earth and an overall, very savory attitude. Some dried plums here, too. This is very complex. The palate has a succulent and fresh core of black cherries and plums, framed in layers of savory earth and meat flavors. The tannins unfurl majestically into the finish. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Uccelliera's 2004 Brunello di Montalcino packs a serious punch. Cedar, pipe, tobacco, dried cherry and menthol race out of the glass. Rich, explosive and super-expressive, the 2004 is going through a period of real brilliance right now. Even so, I would prefer to finish any bottles over the next few years, as the fruit is starting to dry out. Today, though, the 2004 is brilliant. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is among our favorite 2004 Brunellos. Winemaker Andrea Cortonesi who once said, “the best irrigation is sweat,” has worked hard to craft this plush, modern and penetrating wine. It boasts a deep, dark concentration and a very beautiful bouquet of luscious blackberries, spice, black mineral and cola. It's round and supple and shines simpatico. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (6/2009)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red with ruby highlights. Ripe nose combines currant, tobacco, chocolate and pungent spices. Silky-sweet and sappy, with an uncommonly suave texture and lovely floral lift. This really fills the mouth without leaving any impression of weight. The long, broad, rising finish sparkles with mineral dust. A superb example. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2009)
