94+ Points - Wine Advocate
"Voliero is a second brand made by Uccelliera's Andrea Cortonesi. It's slightly more affordable but that's a tricky argument to make given the new sky high price points I'm seeing across the denomination. The Voliero 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a very pretty expression with dark fruit and an impressive sense of purity and primary fruit authenticity. At its core, you will encounter savory tones of spice, tobacco and leather. The bouquet also offers those beautifully polished Sangiovese-driven aromas of licorice, blue violets and balsam herb. The mouthfeel is succulent and rich. This is a very respectable Brunello that should age forward for at least ten years." -ML, 2/28/17

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"This red is fresh, richly textured and displays cherry, leather, licorice and spice aromas and flavors. Firms up on the finish, with a layer of dusty tannins, playing out with sweet fruit in the end. Best from 2019 through 2033. 600 cases made." -BS, 6/30/17

91 Points - Vinous
"Luminous dark red. Vanilla and sweet spices complement the rich ripe dark fruit aromas on the nose. Dense and suave, with fleshy red cherry and sweet spice flavors nicely supported by smooth tannins. Bigger styled tnan most 2012 Brunellos but manages not to slide over the top." -ID, Mar/2017
