Le Potazzine Brunello di Montalcino 2016

Le Potazzine, Brunello di Montalcino 2016

RRP £63.88

Potazzine is the name of a colourful bird found in Tuscany. Owned by former oenologist for the Consorzio di Brunello, Giuseppe Gorelli, this authentic, pure expression of Sangiovese, with very fine sandy, silty tannins and bright juicy acidity impressed me in all its angular, characterful glory. A Giacometti of a wine.
