The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino walks a very fine line between elegance and finesse. Those may seem like two analogous terms, but this wine teaches you that they are not. The bouquet offers tonic and buoyant tones of wild berry, blueberry, dried herb and licorice. Each is elegant in its own right, but together they form a nuanced and finessed whole. Le Potazzine does very nicely in the hot vintages, but it delivers unexpected surprises (like this wine) in the cooler ones.

Pale crimson. Heady nose. Confident and refined with a dry finish though no one would accuse it of a surplus of fruit; rather wet-stony on the end. I don’t think this is a style I would choose from Montalcino (so many other places are making it) but it's certainly a point of difference, even if I don't...
Aromas of smoky meat, dark berry and dried flowers. Full body, chewy tannins and a tight finish. Reserved. Needs two or three years to soften.
