| Very intense ruby red with garnet glints. A rich, complex bouquet, of considerable concentration and depth, particularly highlighted by scents of red fruit and small fruits, several undertones of minty spices, vanilla and liquorice. Generous taste, full-bodied and great structure, the perfect combination of the characteristics of this vineyard and the oak barrels, in a mass of great smoothness and sheer class, with a lengthy aromatic persistence. Uccellone is one of the best vineyards on the hilltops of Rocchetta Tanaro.
