2008 Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #1152899 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark * Cellar Selection* Here’s a beautiful interpretation from the 2008 vintage that shows balance, harmony and intensity all zipped up into one tight package. That seamless integration, followed by rich extraction, gives the wine momentum overall. Although this is a different wine from past vintages, the quality is just as high. Hold 5-10 years. Inner quote mark (5/2013)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of chocolate and black cherries with sweet fruit undertone. Full and very soft tannins with a bright acidity underneath. Velvety texture to this wine. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the biggest, most powerful wines of the year. Scorched earth, tar, game, licorice and smoke all burst from a surprisingly explosive, full-bodied wine for the vintage. There is no shortage of depth in the glass. The 2008 becomes more refined over time, yet remains intense and virile. Cloves, menthol, tar and new leather flesh out on the varietal, imposing finish. Today, the 2008 is bit rustic and rough around the edges, but is a strong effort for the year, and one of the few 2008s that has the potential to surprise in the future. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2023. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Begins with pretty cherry and floral notes before turning firm and dense, with dusty tannins. This will need some time for the sweet fruit, spice and leather flavors to meld. Offers a fine, minerally finish. Best from 2016 through 2030. Inner quote mark (5/2013)
