Gorelli "Le Potazzine " Brunello di Montalcino Italian Red Tuscany 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

" 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: 2008-2015...91" WA 05/08.

Le Potazzine is made up of about five hectares of vineyards destined to produce Brunello wine. Three hectares are located near the cellar while the remaining vines which were planted in 1996, the same year that Sofia was born, are situated further south near Sant’Angelo in Colle at La Torre. The acquisition of this new piece of land allowed Giuseppe, enologist not only for the wine he produces but also consulting enologist for other wineries, to unite the elegance and the scents of the grapes already cultivated in the west at Le Prata near the cellar with those harvested further south. In this way he has been able to elaborate on his own personal approach to wine-making by producing wines which are distinguished by character and personality aiming for perfect balance. Read less
