Truly excellent 'entry level' Brunello; muscular and richly-flavoured as Brunello should be.

Warm and ripe on the nose with black fruits, savoury, meaty characters, mocha and spice. The palate has ripe black plum and sweet spice characters with notes of toasty oak. The firm structure is balanced by the richness and intensity of the fruit, and vibrant acidity gives a sustained and balanced finish.

Winemaker Giuseppe Losapio founded Azienda Uggiano in the early 1970s, and steadily developed the estate at San Vincenzo a Torri. It is now one of the leading producers in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini zone. With 100 hectares of hillside vineyards (in both Colli Fiorentini and around neighbouring Chianti Classico, near San Casciano), Uggiano produces classic and classy Tuscan reds from the region's principal grape varieties. A core of quality runs through an unfussy, practical and exceptionally well-priced range, from bright entry level Chianti to some impressive Riserva wines. In 2015, the Losapio family sold the company to Uggiano’s young but experienced management team, including commercial manager Giacomo Fossati and Daniele Prosperi, winemaker for the past 12 vintages.

After crushing, grapes undergo temperature-controlled fermention in stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. The must is pumped over the skins twice a day to extract colour and tannin. After 18-22 days the wine is racked to large Slavonian oak casks, where it matures for the next 36 months.

Grilled meats (great with wild boar or pheasant if you have any handy!) or with Tuscan Pecorino cheese.
