Reviews & Scores

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.
94 Points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

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...

feel it makes the most of what Brunello di Montalcino has to offer...Drink 2017-2022.
16 Points, Jancis Robinson MW


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.
93 Points, James Suckling

TASTING NOTES

A vivid mid-ruby, dried rose petal and balsamic scented reserva, still showing vibrant raspberry fruit and fresh acid. Chocolate-coated cherry character with hints of vanilla, but in a far more restrained way than in classic Rioja wines. Superb structure with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a tar-like grip towards the end of the long finish. Armit Wines
