2018 Parus, Le Potazzine, Gorelli, Tuscany

Smells beautiful. Very delicate on the nose, beautiful drive and a very silky nose. Some dark berry fruit, plenty of floral character, and just a hint of herbal lift. Very saline on the palate, very finely judged tannins – talcum powder– this was just bottled but already showing plenty of potential.

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.
