"The Uccelliera 2017 Brunello di Montalcino does a great job showcasing that extra power and brawn of the vintage and the richer textural structure of the southern side of the appellation. The bouquet is up front and beautifully measured with lots of red and purple fruit definition followed by spice, tar and earthiness. What sets this wine apart in this hot and dry vintage is the mouthfeel. It delivers fiber, flesh and soft tannins. The alcohol is a bit much at 15% in this production of 28,666 bottles." —Wine Advocate

"Balsam herbs, cocoa and sweet white smoke give way to crushed black cherry and plum as the 2017 Brunello di Montalcino blossoms in the glass. This is elegance personified, silky, deep and round, yet delivering a core of saline-minerality that creates a savory sensation – umami, in a way – with masses of ripe red fruits and confectionary spices to contrast. The tannins are sweet and round, presenting a chiseled structure; yet it’s not forceful. This tapers off with a tart twang of sour wild berries under an air of lavender and violets. Wow; there is so much concentration and depth here, but also balance. In fact, there’s hardly a sign of this being from a difficult vintage. While I expect it will have a shorter life than an Uccelliera Brunello from a classic year, the 2017 should not be missed." —Vinous

"A solid 2017, but there’s tangy freshness to this, and relatively fine tannins that frame the wine nicely. Plenty of ripe fruit. Some fresh mushroom, too. Drink after 2023." —James Suckling

"The wine has refreshing acidity and a touch of sweetness from the ripe fruit. You may smell the scents of pear, green apples and citrus. In the mouth, the light effervescence provides a vibrant, racy texture." —winemaker

"In the glass, this wine presents an alluring, intense ruby red hue. The aroma is a delightful interplay of fine, expansive red fruits, complemented by hints of flowering grapes and lavender. On the palate, it unfolds as a dry yet soft experience, boasting a full-bodied profile supported by velvety tannins. Its remarkable persistence hints at great aging potential, making it a captivating choice for those seeking a wine with both immediate appeal and the promise of evolving complexity over time." —winemaker

"The Tempranillo vineyards are planted in sandy soils in the traditional “vaso”, head-pruned, system. The handpicked grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and then the wine is aged in French and American oak barrels. Deep purple in color, the aromatics erupt with a mix of crushed red and black fruits, sweet spice, and tinged with cedar. An incredible value, possessing fantastic fruit, excellent mid-palate depth and ripe tannins." —winemaker

Graham's 20-Year-Old Tawny Port Size: 750ml

"Amber, golden tawny color. An excellent bouquet, with a characteristic 'nutty' character, such as almonds, and delicious mature fruit with hints of orange peel. Rich, sweet and smooth on the palate, it is perfectly balanced, with a long and lingering finish. Graham's 20-Year-Old Tawny Port pairs extremely well with vanilla ice cream or crème brûlée. Serve slightly chilled to appreciate the full complexity and sensuous pleasure of this wine." —winemaker
