IGT Toscana, Sangiovese, Le Potazzine - 2020

Produced from young Brunello di Montalcino vines, this Sangiovese Grosso is carefully cultivated, vinified with long macerations and then matured in vats to retain the purity of the fruit. The result is superb: very pure aromas of cherry and rose. The tannins are fine and silky, giving this wine a delightful delicacy and crispness. Vinous : 90/100

Viticulture

Potazzine is a very traditional family estate that works with respect to its grape variety and terroir and strives to respect the nature and soul of the wines that have made the reputation of this region. This wine comes from young vines of Sangiovese grosso located on Brunello di Montalcino terroirs. Cultivation in cordon de royat. Planting density: 5952 vines/ha.

Oenology

The fermentation is done spontaneously, by the work of indigenous yeasts, macerations of about 20 to 25 days, then the wine is aged in barrels of 10, 30 and 50 hl. for about 6 months. Before being marketed, it is kept in the cellar for 2 to 3 months.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Scarole, pine nuts and sultanas • Duck pie with spices • Roast guinea fowl.

Domain
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...
