Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Uccelliera 2015 Rapace is a blend of 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, all aged in French barrique for 18 months. The wine was bottled in July 2017 and was released to market in January 2018. Some 11,200 bottles were produced. This bottle takes us back in time to what was a very rewarding growing season in Tuscany. The primary fruit is surprisingly well intact in this vintage (the oldest in this mini vertical, which also includes the 2016 and 2017 Rapace). Dark, plummy fruit rises to the top, pulling opulent tones of barbecue spice and smoke along. The tannins have surrendered to a soft and silky side.
