    Wine Advocate Notes
    96+ Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Le Potazzine always delivers a smooth and silky style with extreme elegance and the lifted cool-climate fruit that you get from this high-altitude growing site. The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is taut and firm with cherry fruit, dried raspberry, tilled earth, spice and blue flower. The wine sees an extended fermentation of 40 days and ages in botte grande for 42 months. This is a well-balanced wine that is slightly thinner, with one notch lower intensity in this vintage compared to past editions. You get a light, sharp and streamlined style. I prefer the 2015 vintage slightly to this wine, but I'm suggesting a longer drinking window here. This is an 18,000-bottle release that hits the market in January 2021."
    Vinous Media
    95 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The remarkably pretty 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows a pure bouquet full of wild strawberries, woodland berries and herbs with a hint of crushed stone. It’s soft and enveloping, displaying fleshy red fruits, savory spice and salty minerals, while vibrant acids maintain wonderful freshness. It’s only at the very end that its youthful structure comes forward, grippy and classically drying, yet under an air of red licorice and inner rose. There’s a beautiful harmony to this vintage of Le Potazzine, which should provide a long and wide drinking window." 11/20
    James Suckling Notes
    94 Points, James Suckling: "This is a cooler style of Brunello with blueberries, black cherries, crushed stones, and lavender. It’s full-bodied with firm, tight tannins. Yet, it opens at the end to pinpointed fruit and tannins. Give this time to soften. Try after 2024."
    98+ Points, Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes: 'This Brunello, produced in non-interventionist vineyards, reveals a fruit of \ngreat richness: distinct and at the same time intense. The nose is vibrating with small dark fruits, thyme, a nuance of camomile. The mouth displays savoury tannins, officinal touches and extraordinary crunchiness" 10/20
