Tasting Notes: Elegant and refined with alluring red and black fruits, flowers, and mocha in the nose and mouth, this Rosso di Montalcino is made from the younger Brunello vines.

96 points, Vinous: “A mentholated freshness introduces the Brunello di Montalcino, as a vibrant wave of crushed cherries, mint leaf, clove, and dusty roses make up its gorgeous bouquet. This is silky and enveloping yet lifted and full of energy, with crunchy red berry fruits that leave a crackle of primary concentration toward the close. It finishes pretty saline and spicy, leaving edgy tannins to mingle with a residual bump of acidity that maintains a wonderfully fresh sensation as tart cranberry notes fade. This is one of the most exciting young renditions of Voliero I have ever tasted. It captivates with its precision and spry personality while holding depths of complexity in reserve. Drink: 2025-2040. 96 points.” –Eric Guido, Vinous, Nov 2023

The Domain: Voliero is a second project of the very talented Andrea Cortonesi of Uccelliera and other producers started in 2006. These grapes come from the northern end of the Montalcino zone because they wanted to enhance the different aspects of the this extraordinary terroir. As the grapes for Voliero are from a cooler area, Andrea continues his minimalist approach to winemaking, and wants to only amplify the purity and finesse of the Northern Zone.
