Brunello di Montalcino, Le Potazzine - 2018

Gigliola Giannetti is one of the leaders of the traditional style. His Brunello is simply dazzling: open with notes of orange, smoke and tobacco, it is a refined wine, broad and ample as its terroir dictates, but masterfully balanced and held in the frame. A Brunello of class. Vinous : 94+/100 ; Decanter : 94/100 ; Jancis Robinson : 17/20

Potazzine is a very traditional family estate that works with respect for its grape variety and terroir and strives to respect the nature and soul of the wines that have made the reputation of this region. Two distinct plots are at the origin of this wine: Le Prata, facing south-east at an altitude of 500 m.; Le Torre, facing south-west at 320 m. Cordon de royat cultivation, 5952 vines/ha.


Fermentation takes place spontaneously, through the work of indigenous yeasts, maceration lasts about 28 to 30 days, then the wine is aged in 30/50 hl tuns for 38 to 40 months. It is then kept in the cellar for 10 to 12 months before being released for sale. This cuvée is regularly one of the best rated and most beautiful of the region in its classic style, a wine for long ageing.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Venison stew - Saddle of hare - Roast woodcock - Eggplant and beef cannelloni.

In the space of a decade, this estate has gone from being a discovery to the "star" of the media-friendly Brunello di Montalcino appellation: the oldest and most prestigious in Tuscany.The term Potazzine, in Montalcino, is used to designate the great tit, a small, lively and colourful bird that inhabits the Tuscan countryside; with this in mind, the term is also often used affectionately by grandparents and parents to address their descendants. The link between the two Potazzines is not only expressed in the name, but also in the evolution of the family estate. The estate was established in 1993, when Viola was born, and expanded by a further two hectares in 1996, when Sofia arrived. This brought the area for Brunello production, which the estate now claims, to 5 hectares. Three are located near the winery, at an altitude of 507 metres, with an average age of 14 years. The other two are located in the Sant'Angelo in Colle area, at about 420 metres above sea level, with vines planted in 1996. The pruning method is guyot. Harmony, finesse and precision are the key words of the estate's wines, which can count on the family's ability to blend the elegance and aromas of the grapes grown to the west, at Prata, with the structure of the grapes grown further south, at Sant'Angelo.The objective pursued since the first vinification of the estate is to produce wine in the most natural way...
