Le Potazzine

Located in the heart of Montalcino, the estate sources their grapes from two different vineyards of varying altitude and soil types. These sites have a relatively cool climate and high-altitude positioning which leads to Monica Larner saying it is “these special conditions are exactly why this wine performs so nicely in a warm vintage like 2015” (WA).

Le Potazzine is a small winery that released its first wine only in 1997. Its ascent up the Tuscan hierarchy has been mind-blowing. Run by the dynamic all-female trio of Gigliola Gorelli and her daughters, the Wine Advocate comments the women behind this great estate for breaking with the Brunello pack, hailing them as “a sure bet if you are looking for a Brunello that will knock your socks off”.

Le Potazzine Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015 (6x75cl)

Vinous (97)

Le Potazzine 's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is fabulous. The bouquet is showing an earthy display, with smoky minerals and dark soil tones up front, evolving with time in the glass, as crushed black cherry mixes with wild, savory herbs and dried dusty florals. On the palate, gorgeously ripe red fruits are balanced by a mix of saline-minerals, savory spice and zesty acidity, as fine tannin slowly mounts beneath its pretty inner floral tones. The finish is long with a salty-savory twang of minerals and spice, as hints of hard red candies and a bit of citrus lingers over a core of tannic heft. There is so much to like about the 2015, from its classic and earthy bouquet to its fleshy yet balanced palate and totally classic finish. Simply stunning and so pleasurable.
