Description

The Le Potazzine 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is immediately bright and energized. The wine is sprightly and lively. This is an elegantly medium-weight wine, but everything is in exactly the right place. Fresh acidity and snappy fruit flavours are followed by lighter touches of rose petal, cardamon, camphor ash and powdered licorice. These aromas are stacked tall and proud. Of special interest is that point of zesty medicinal herb that reminds you of the relatively cool climate and high-altitude positioning of Le Potazzine's vineyards. These special conditions are exactly why this wine performs so nicely in a warm vintage like 2015. The coolness of the growing site offsets the temperatures of the growing season. 97/100 The Wine Advocate

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.
