UCCELLIERA 2012 RAPACE

"Uccelliera is now without question one of the handful of top producers in Montalcino." - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate
The tiny-production “Rapace” is a 60% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet barrique-aged blend. Uccelliera is a practicing organic winery. Integrated insect and disease control is followed; organic and organic-mineral fertilizers (copper and sulfur-based products) are used in the vineyards. Insecticides and herbiscides are used rarely, if ever. The soil is tilled on the rows between the vines. To preserve the wine, low doses of SO2 are added to the wines.
Rapace by Uccelliera is an extremely limited Super Rapace. It bursts from the glass with dark red cherries, plums, licorice, spices and menthol. This delicious Italian red is a blend of Brunello (Sangiovese Grosso), Cabernet and Merlot. Rapace, which means raptor in Italian, is seductively smooth nuanced can be enjoyed now and over the next 5 years.
