2013 Gorelli, Le Potazzine, Rosso di Montalcino, Tuscany

Press and Tasting Notes

Le Potazzine's Rosso di Montalcino has quickly become a must-have wine for Montalcino lovers (the first year of production was 1998); a warm, elegant Sangiovese with red fruits, cherry, and tobacco on the nose, charming yet with serious substance beneath the deceptively fresh surface. The wine will continue to age well for at least 4-5 years.

THE REVIEW

Brunello fans, this is the vintage you have been waiting for! Unfortunately, the winemaking laws in Montalcino don't allow these wines to be released until 2012 (by law they must remain in cask and then bottles for a certain number of years before they can be released). So if you are like us and can't wait that long, there is great news! You can enjoy the pleasures of this awesome vintage in the 2007 Le Potazzine Gorelli Rosso di Montalcino.
    Rosso di Montalcino is often referred to as a "Baby Brunello" because it is essentially an early harvest Brunello (same grapes, just not aged as long). We selected this Rosso, one of our favorites, from a recent Tuscan tasting and after swishing and swirling through some of the greatest producers, we singled out this wine as one where quality, integrity, and price convened. It is smooth and elegant without the formal structure of its big brother Brunello which makes it perfect for the upcoming warmer weather. Aromas of plum, blueberry and dark cherry fill the glass. The palate reveals a dry tannin that is a welcome complement to the rich, fruit forward dark berry flavors.
    Robert Parker has called Gorelli "a tour de force in winemaking!" This delicious red is as at home in the dining room as it is on the porch. It has the bones of a fine wine and structure to age for 5 + years, but can surely be opened now and enjoyed with any grilled foods, cheese, and light meaty pasta dishes. Enjoy!Read More »
