Andrea Cortonesi is the identity behind the Uccelliera wines. The story behind the estate deserves further attention. It begins with the Uccelliara wines as part of the Ciacci Piccolomoni estate, which is also located in Montalcino. After perfecting his technique as the cellar master at Ciacci, Andrea made the natural move to purchase the Uccelliara property in order to forge his own path. His first vintage was a small, but mighty 500 bottles in 1991. Then he grew. His vines are tucked away in the hills of Castelnuovo dell’Abate in Montalcino. Andrea does not pull any shortcuts; all vineyard work is done by hand only and the wines are among the cult classics of Tuscany.
The Uccelliera Olive Oil comes from their estate olive groves in Castelnuovo dell'Abate in the Montalcino region, just as their vineyards do. This is excellent poured over grilled or poached fish, and versatile poured over other warm dishes.
