Robert Parker
The 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Ugolaia is a selection of the best lots. Solid and dark in color, its nose expresses wild cherries, kirsch, plums, tar, and minerals. Powerful and muscular, but not at the expense of the tannins’ smoothness, its sweet fruit and chocolate flavors are unending. The finish shows the freshness which is Bernabei’s signature. Drink: 2005-2016.

Wine Spectator
Dark ruby-garnet. Intense aromas of blackberry and grilled meat. Green and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with big and round tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very concentrated. Needs time still to mellow. Best after 2009. 10,000 cases made.
