94pts Vinous

The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino takes its time opening in the glass, as a charming mix of crushed violets, dusty lavender and black currants form its understated bouquet. It’s soft-textured and round on the palate, with potent red fruits and cooling mineral tones that give way to a slight herbal-peppery tinge toward the close. This finishes grippy and savory in style, yet with residual acids that help to maintain fantastic balance, as blue- and purple-tinged inner florals slowly fade. The 2018 is an understated beauty, yet it will require patience to come fully into focus.

93pts James Suckling

Savory and juicy with aromas of dried herbs, currants, cherries, olives and bark. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins and a bright, succulent finish.

92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Voliero 2018 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a pleasant, albeit simple presentation of cherry, dried raspberry, grilled herb and crushed stone. There are background hints of licorice, rusty metal and tarry smoke that add a veiling of complexity and depth. However, the wine remains accessible overall, and it's probably best to drink it over the next five years or so, while that primary fruit is still fresh.

Winemaker Notes

Voliero Brunello di Montalcino offers aromas of red plum, cherry and kirsch with hints of flowers. The palate is lush and silky with lingering notes of cherry, herbs, and mineral.

Voliero is a second project of the very talented Andrea Cortonesi of Uccelliera and other producers started in 2006. These grapes come from the northern end of the Montalcino zone because they wanted to enhance the different aspects of the this extraordinary terroir. As the grapes for Voliero are from a cooler area, Andrea continues his minimalist approach to winemaking, and wants to only amplify the purity and finesse of the Northern Zone.
