The Uccelliera 2016 Rapace (a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) shows a focused and chiseled personality that is very characteristic of this vintage. The wine's mineral side, with shadings of lead pencil and crushed stone, give sharp contours and delineation to the abundant black fruit packed tight at the core. The wine shows bright acidity with more than enough rich fruit to bolster that freshness. Some 11,300 bottles were produced, and this bottle was originally released to the market in January 2019. This is an outstanding value buy.

70% Sangiovese, 20 % Merlot, 10 % Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyards in Castelnuovo dell’Abate, at elevations of 150-350 meters on well-exposed hill slopes south-east of Montalcino. Maturation in small French oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months. Bottle ageing for a minimum of 6 months before released for sale.Rich, complex and powerful, but clean and smooth at the same time, with prominent but fine-grained tannins, and a dynamic, rising finale long-lingering.
Gorgeously perfumed notes of cherry and tobacco. Soft, supple palate of red and black fruits leading to a long finish.
