2016 Brunello di Montalcino, Ugolforte, San Giorgio


$45.00 per Bottle


8 Bottles




"This is a full-bodied red with ripe blackberry, smoked-meat and burnt-orange notes. Strong tannins with a lots of chewiness. Quite tight on the finish. But there is pureness and beauty to this. More opulent than the 2015. Drink after 2025." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolforte is a dark beauty, impressing with its youthful poise but also its potential. Mint leaf and a dusting of cedar give way to crushed stone, wild strawberry and hints of flowery undergrowth. There are depths of velvety textures and polished red/black fruits, which create a sense of elegance; yet you can feel that there are layers here which are currently unseen. A complex web of fine tannins and minerals penetrate deeply, just as brisk acids and remnants of tart woodland berries fight to remain prevalent; yet all that remains is a hint of licorice. Wow."

"Lustrous ruby. Very youthful and tight yet clearly concentrated on the nose and with the merest hint of oak. Succulent and deep on the palate and with an imposing tannic structure that is quite demanding right now. Clearly built to age, which it needs." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
