Uggiano Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

2012

In a Nutshell

Truly excellent 'entry level' Brunello - muscular and richly-flavoured as Brunello should be.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of forest fruits and violet, with a hint of clove on the nose. The palate has more wild berry, black cherry, plum and sweet spice characters with notes of toasty oak. The firm structure is balanced by vibrant acidity.

Production Notes

After crushing, grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. The must is pumped over the skins twice a day to add colour and tannin. After 18-22 days the wine is racked to large Slavonian oak casks, where it matures for the next 36 months.

Azienda Uggiano was established in the early 1970s by oenologist Giuseppe Losapio. He steadily developed the estate, at San Vincenzo a Torri near the river Pesa, to become one of the leading producers in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini zone.
