The Uccelliera estate, located in the warm southern Castelnuovo dell'Abate part of the Montalcino zone, was part of the neighboring Ciacci Piccolomini estate until 1986. All work in the vineyard is done by hand. The Brunello features complex aromas of exotic spice and dark red fruits with an expansive palate and velvety texture.
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.
