The Le Potazzine 2020 Rosso di Montalcino is another standout wine that builds momentum and recognition for this entry-level category. The approach is steady and polished, with plenty of redcurrant, cherry and crushed flowers. It ends with a pretty blast of freshness that resets the palate for your next sip, yet there is enough tonic grip to pair with grilled meats or fried foods. 90/100 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.
