VIDEO 061. AZIENDA UCCELLIERA

September 16. 2012

Andrea Cortonesi from Azienda Uccelliera is definitely a person you should meet once in your lifetime. His winery is based in Castelnuovo dell´Abate, near the worldwide known city Montalcino, and its a pure manifesto of simplicity. His family lives a rural life, which is reflected in the structure of the winery. This doesn´t mean, that Andrea isn´t able to produce majestic wines. Of course he´s a vintner who can deal with every single vintage, because he is personally attending to his vineyards every day and therefore he knows how his vines behave.
