Product Description

The 2013 Le Potazzine Brunello di Montalcino is one of the finest Brunellos of the 2013 vintage. The fragrance of violets immediately characterizes the nose with additional notes of berry fruit, dried herbs, and tobacco. The flavors fully correspond to the impression left on the nose, with a firm mid-palate that's fruity and floral, the texture heightened by velvety tannins which, together with the savory and mineral sensations, give the wine both length and persistence.

Varietal Composition: 100 percent Sangiovese
Appellation: Brunello di Montalcino DOCG
Aging: 42 months in Slavonian oak casks, followed by 8 additional  months in bottle prior to release

96 Points - Vinous
"Bright red. Sweet, spicy red cherry, blueberry compote and powdered rocks on the nose are complicated by herbs and ink. Rich, dense and multilayered, but with delightful vibrancy that gives this concentrated beauty’s liqueur-like richness of red and blue fruit flavors a graceful quality. Outstanding sugar-acid-tannin balance contributes to this wine’s many charms on the exhilaratingly long, lively finish. One of the best Brunellos of the 2013 vintage." -ID, Apr/2018

94 Points - Wine Advocate
"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. Only 13,000 bottles will be sold." -ML, 2/28/18

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Heady flavors of plum, macerated cherry, sweet spices, leather and earth mark this powerful red. The dense tannins are well-matched to the fruit, texture and breadth. Exuberance wins over subtlety here. Best from 2022 through 2036. 1,100 cases made." -BS, 8/16/18

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Underbrush, tilled soil, new leather, dried herb and pressed rose aromas slowly unfold in the glass. On the vibrant, linear palate, white pepper and chopped mint notes accent a core of sour cherry and pomegranate. Racy acidity and taut refined tannins give it an elegant structure while a saline note closes the lingering finish. It's still youthfully austere and needs time to fully develop. Drink from 2023 through 2033." -KO, 5/1/18
