2013 Rosso di Montalcino
Le Potazzine is a mere five hectares of vines, four of which are located around the cellar. The rest comes from a planting further south which helps add an extra dimension and level of complexity to the wines. Previously this wine was aged in stainless steel but now it is aged in large oak foudres, though not new. It is all about purity, refinement and balance with coolness of fruit and stylish tannins. Drink from 2015.
`Sage, lavender, mint, rosemary, tobacco and dried cherries are some of the notes that meld together in Le Potazzine`s 2013 Rosso di Montalcino. This is a distinctly savory style of Rosso, with tons of aromatic and flavor complexity, not to mention the pedigree to drink well for a number of years. The 2013 spent a year in cask and emerges from vineyards that could be used for Brunello.` Drink. 2015-2020 92 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, February 2015
