Le Potazzine's Brunellos are genuine reflections of this classic Tuscan appellation. Features hearty earthiness with red currants and a healthy dose of black fruits, this wine is still faithful to the winery's balanced and subtle profile, perfect to help any novitiate to Montalcino wines understand why Brunellos are so highly prized. Ruby red with intense garnet reflections. Profound and ample nose with berry notes, but also with dried fruit notes that are an elegant contrast. Intense, austere, full and velvety with a long finish. Serve with red meat & game.
91 Points-Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate "Fresh, vibrant and perfumed in its expression of violets, black cherries, licorice and spices. Medium in body, it offers outstanding balance and well-integrated tannins in a poised style that shows notable clarity and precision. I would have never guessed this to be a 2003 had I not known the vintage beforehand. This classically built Brunello was aged in casks of various sizes. Anticipated maturity: now-2015."
90 Points-Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar "Full, deep red. Plum, mocha and spicy oak on the nose. At once pliant and juicy, with lovely perfume to the flavors of cherry, redcurrant, herbs and spices. Harmonious acidity gives this wine a graceful quality. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and lingering sweetness."
90 Points-The Wine Spectator "Pretty aromas of cherry and fresh flowers lead to a full-bodied palate, with lightly jammy fruit and soft, round tannins. Refined yet generous."
