94pts+ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Le Potazzine delivers solid results thanks to the impressive positioning of its vines that straddle the crown of a high-elevation plain. The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino shows bright fruit with cherry and redcurrant, and that makes all the difference. Careful oak aging has enhanced the aromas. I also feel the effects of careful cellar aging in terms of mouthfeel, especially the structure and tannins. The wine is tightly stitched together with a point of sourness on the close. Give it a few more years to soften. Some 15,500 bottles were made.

94pts+ Vinous

The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino takes some coaxing to come together in the glass, dusty yet floral, with crushed ashen stones and a core of plum followed by savory herbs and black currant beneath it all. This is elegance personified, casting velvety textural waves of ripe red and blue berries across the palate, all lifted by brisk acidity, and with a flourish of lavender that lights up the senses. A coating of fine tannins lingers, yet the mouth is left watering for more, as nuances of licorice and blackberry slowly fade. The 2018 is a classy rendition of the vintage, elevated by a slightly higher declassification of juice that went into the Rosso di Montalcino. I’d give it another two to three years of cellaring to come fully together.

Winemaker Notes

An intense fruity nose that here at Le Potazzine we love to describe as “fancy”. In the mouth is very varietal, with notes of black-fruits supported by a well-balanced acidity, which enhances the freshness and the drinkability of this Brunello, as well as promising a very long shelf-life in the bottle. 

The nose is already a perfect equilibrium between fruity and floral scents, with the dark berries combining with gardenia and violet. In the mouth is very juicy and savory, well-defined by spicy notes and red cherry aromas. Beautiful right now but able to be cellared for two decades.
