Description

The ladies of Le Potazzine make a terrific bottle of Brunello, and their high-elevation vineyards are especially important in maintaining freshness in a scorching-hot vintage such as this. The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino offers a pretty succession of wild berry, cherry and plum aromas, along with light spice, crushed flowers and perfumed potting soil. This wine is also distinguished by a touch of bay leaf and maybe a warmer note of cured tobacco as well. This is an impressive effort. 95/100 RP

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.
