Executed by Giuseppe Gorelli and Gigliola Giannetti, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous wine that performs beautifully on the palate thanks to its rich velvety texture and density. The appearance is marked by dark concentration and the aromas move from dried cherry to easy tobacco tones. The mouthfeel is sweet and plush, backed by a distant hint of tannic mineral grip. This is a great food wine especially with fatty dishes like grilled sausage. Drink. 2018-2026.
Producer Information: Tenuta Le Potazzine
Owned and run by Gigliola Gianetti and her two daughters, Viola and Sofia, this five hectare winery is located at 507 metres above sea level, one of the highest points in Montalcino. Le Potazzine’s vineyards are split between this breezy location, which gives the wines tremendous elegance and freshness, and warmer sites in Sant’Angelo in Colle further south, where the grapes produce a richer and fuller style.
Le Potazzine always delivers a smooth and silky style
with extreme elegance and the lifted cool-climate fruit
that you get from this high-altitude growing site.
