Le Potazzine Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG
Availability: In Stock
Excluding GST: S$283.00
Le Potazzine is made up of about five hectares of vineyards destined to produce Brunello wine. Three hectares are located near the cellar while the remaining vines which were planted in 1996, the same year that Sofia was born, are situated further south near Sant’Angelo in Colle at La Torre. The acquisition of this new piece of land allowed Giuseppe, enologist not only for the wine he produces but also consulting enologist for other wineries, to unite the elegance and the scents of the grapes already cultivated in the west at Le Prata near the cellar with those harvested further south. In this way he has been able to elaborate on his own personal approach to wine-making by producing wines which are distinguished by character and personality aiming for perfect balance.
The ladies of Le Potazzine have broken with the pack. They are betting on this Riserva from the warm 2011 vintage over everything else (including vintages held in higher esteem by appellation authorities). The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is indeed a sure bet if you are looking for a Brunello that will knock your socks off. This is a sharp, precise and extremely defined Sangiovese. This is an inspired wine (with a mere 3,200 bottles produced). The bouquet is slow and steady but also very effective as it comes into full focus. Red cherry, blackberry, cassis, balsam herb and spice all merge seamlessly on the nose. The mouthfeel is polished and long. You can count it in many long minutes... - The Wine Advocate (2011 vintage)
