2015 Brunello di Montalcino, Le Potazzine, Gorelli, Tuscany

From two plots in the appellation, the 2015 Brunello from Le Potazzine is surely the best wine they’ve produced here. We’ve tasted it throughout its development, and it’s blossomed into a sublime wine. Bright cherry fruit with a zesty blood orange note keeps this focussed and pure, and the finish is remarkably long. This is a lesson in elegance and purity from one of the best producers in Italy. Not to be missed.

Le Potazzine

Le Potazzine is a true family affair, founded by Gigliola Giannetti in 1993, and which she now runs with her daughters, Viola and Sofia. Potazzine is local dialect for the “little birds” which adorn the label, as well as a term for children. The estate has just five hectares of vines, among the highest plots in Montalcino at 570 metres. The cool sites produce remarkably elegant Sangiovese, and Gigliola’s Brunellos retain freshness in even the hottest years. It’s an estate destined for greatness.
