My Notes:

About Uccelliera:

The Uccelliera estate, located in the warm southern Castelnuovo dell'Abate part of the Montalcino zone, was part of the neighboring Ciacci Piccolomini estate until 1986. Proprietor Andrea Cortonesi recently added two hectares adjacent to Ciacci's famous "Pianrosso" vineyard; the property now totals 6 hectares. All work in the vineyard is done by hand.
