Winemaker Notes

Marked tannins but very smooth, soft and structured, well blending with the woods with which it is refined.

Pairs well with first courses with a savory sauce, meat, cheeses and in general with savory foods.

Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
A firm and fresh red with medium body, bright acidity and fine, linear tannins that are integrated and focused. Plenty of cherry and berry character.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Uccelliera 2018 Rapace (a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a lean, medium-bodied red. This is an easy-drinking blend with an especially food-friendly taste profile. The 2018 vintage is on the thinner side, but this wine will appeal to those who appreciate more brightness and aromatic lift.

Uccelliera, Italy
Uccelliera Winery Image

The Uccelliera estate was at once part of neighboring Ciacci Piccolomini until 1986, when winemaker Andrea Cortonesi purchased it from his friends and former employers. After refining his trade as cellar master for Ciacci, Andrea ventured out on his own with the formation of Uccelliera. His first vintage was 1991 with the production of a mere 500 bottles!

The wines have quickly become cult favorites amongst the cognoscenti. Tucked away in the southeast corner of the appellation in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, the soil here is loose and stony which when coupled with a warm microclimate gives the wines of Uccelliera a rich and ripe expression, vintage after vintage. Two hectares adjacent to Ciacci’s famous ‘Pianrosso’ vineyard were recently added to this boutique estate, bringing the total to a mere six hectares. Andrea Cortonesi is tireless in his approach to winemaking, with all vineyard work done exclusively by hand.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
