The Wine

94 Points Wine Spectator “This red is marked by cherry, plum, thyme, sage and loam aromas and flavors. Lively and firmly structured, featuring a saline undercurrent. An open-knit version, with nice equilibrium, fine energy and a long, resonant finish.”

93 Points Jeb Dunnuck “The 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino Ugolforte is rich with blackberry, licorice, toasted sweet cedar, black cherry, and dark scorched earth. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with lush fruit and soft velvety tannins, notes of ripe blackberry, tea leaf, turned earth, and no bitterness. Approachable thanks to its ripe fruit, it will still benefit from time in the cellar to lose its youthful baby fat.”

93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate “Showing medium-dark concentration, the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolforte is savory in character with black spice, saddle leather and some distant hints of cured meat. I always associate Ugolforte with a more contemporary winemaking style that showcases spice, ripe fruit and soft tannins. This vintage delivers all of those things over a plush and accessible mouthfeel.”

93 Wine Enthusiast “A sweet nose of vanilla, toasted coconut and candied cherry is balanced by undertones of wild herbs. On the palate, that sweetness evolves with figs and chocolate, while crushed stones and soil amplify the savory. Notable tannins are almost chewy with density and structure.”
