Winemaker's Notes

Entirely from the 3.7 acre Ugolaia cru vineyard planted in 1978 with severely selected grafts. While great now, it will continue to develop and improve over the next two decades. Density of the vines is twice as high as the remaining vineyards' – over 1,800 per acre versus 1,150/a. – with crop yields of 1.1 kilo per rootstock. Élevage is 36 months in Slavonian oak (11-20 hl.) followed by 18 months of bottle age.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolaia, from a small old-vine parcel on the estate, floats onto the palate with endless layers of perfumed fruit. Deceptively medium in body, the Ugolaia possesses remarkable depth. Sweet pine, menthol, red cherries and spices meld together seamlessly on the long finish. With time in the glass, the wine gains more volume as the fruit emerges and the bouquet becomes even more expansive. This is a gorgeous Brunello from Lisini. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. "
94 Points

"Finely made in a bold, international style, this shows top-quality fruit and a lot of oak. There's tension underneath, taut acidity and a sleek black mushroom character to the tannin. Ready for a steakhouse."

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
