Le Potazzine 2014 Brunello di Montalcino


In stock

SKU: 26414 Categories: ,


2014 has disappeared into the background of stellar vintages when compared to the likes of 15 and 16, as it plays its cards very close to the chest. A difficult vintage of frequent rainfall and heat spikes meant that only the hardest working viticulturists prospered. The Brunellos of 2014 are more delicate expressions, based on the reduced concentration of the fruit, which led to diminished scores for the region. What is great however is that they become much more accessible for medium-term drinking, i.e. 9 years as opposed to the standard peak of 20 years! This will appeal to those who appreciate the fine and graceful side of Sangiovese in a shorter space of time with the red anise, wild blueberry and smoked wood nuances. It is the lightest Brunello in the line up.

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.
