Le Potazzine Brunello di Montalcino 2014, which is suave and elegant in its fusion with the additional notes of berry fruit. The flavours fully correspond to the impression left on the nose. The first impact is firm, the mid-palate ample, fruity and floral, the texture heightened by velvety tannins which,  together with the savory and mineral sensations, give the wine both length and persistence and an important drinking pleasure.

“Le Potazzine is one of the rising stars in Montalcino. Gigliola and her daughters excel with classically built wines that capture the essence of this high altitude site just a few kilometers outside the city center.”    – Antonio Galloni
