James Suckling 96
"Fascinating aromas of sliced porcini mushroom and ripe fruit. Full body, with a lovely core of ripe fruit and round tannins. It's very flavorful and rich. So long. These people make great wines. Drink or hold. - jamesuckling.com (02/13)"
Wine Spectator 95
"Very pure, with alluring aromas and flavors of strawberry, currant and cherry surrounded by a supple texture. This suave red is firmly structured, with a lingering finish of spice and mineral. Already quite open, but complex and firmly structured. Best from 2015 through 2030. - Spectator (March 2013)"
Antonio Galloni 93
"A rich, voluptuous wine, the 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva wraps around the palate with gorgeous depth and richness. Mocha, espresso, licorice, new leather and cloves are all beautifully layered. The 2007 needs time for the tannins to soften and the oak to integrate, but it is quite pretty and very much in the style of the year. This is classic Uccelliera in its intensity, volume and sheer concentration. French oak shapes the wine and gives it plenty of texture without robbing it of its personality. - vinousmedia.com (September 2013)"
Stephen Tanzer 92
"Moderately saturated ruby-red. Musky aromas of raspberry, cinnamon, leather and tobacco. Round, broad and very lush; forward and easygoing wine with sneaky concentration and a low-acid impression. Finishes with soft but very spicy tannins and a hint of underbrush. This seems almost too plush for a riserva wine, but it's faithful to the hot year. Those who like their Brunellos full-sized and creamy will love this. - Tanzer (September 2013)"
