San Giorgio Ugolforte presents a dark core of red and black berry fruit layered with earth, leather, smoke, and herbs. Complex and elegant, the wine is full on the palate and firm in tannin structure. Refreshing acidity frames a graceful finish. Classic Brunello di Montalcino. Traditionally paired with game and hardy, autumnal fare, Brunello di Montalcino is one of the world's great red wines. Enjoy a celebratory meal or contemplate alone as a true "Vino da Meditazione".

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93 Points "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."

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. Best from 2026 through 2045. 3,400 cases made, 1,750 cases imported.

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. Drink 2025-2035.

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.

The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolforte is understated in the glass, lifted and delicate, with white pepper, pretty rose and nuances of dried strawberry. This envelopes the palate with soft textures and soothingly ripe red fruits contrasted with savory spices and inner herbal tones. The 2018 lingers long, showing balsamic nuances and salted licorice, as gentle tannins frame but don't slow its momentum. It will be interesting to follow this understated beauty through its maturity.
