    Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2011

    A wine that is vinified only in the very best years and then with each edition represents a breathtaking beauty. In depth, purity and structure it is the archetype of a Brunello. It is bewitching with a mix of sage, rosemary, tobacco, wild flowers and cloves to a nuanced and endless finish. He is powerful and seductive at the same time and of great personality. Chapeau!

    "Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. Contained power on the nose with almost chocolatey cherry fruit. Lots of fruit and stuffing on the palate with bags of fine, coating tannins. Quite a mouthful, but impeccably balanced." Jancis Robinson

    "Very ripe and rich with dried-berry, walnut and spice undertones. Full body and a deep and rich palate with soft and chewy tannins. A flavorful finish. Drink or hold." James Suckling

    "This red offers ripe, sweet fruit, with macerated cherry, plum and chocolate flavors that verge on jammy. Nonetheless, this is fresh, tightly structured and persistent on the finish. A layer of dusty tannins holds court for now, so be patient." Wine Spectator

    "Good full red. Aromas of red cherry, blackberry, violet, Christmas spices, licorice and camphor. At once powerful and suave, delivering highly concentrated flavors of red cherry, gunflint and camphor. A more muscular style than the 2011 classico but also wonderfully broad, ripe and deep. The long finish saturates the mouth with subtle perfume of dried fruits and herbs, with dusty, mounting tannins leaving a classic, slightly austere impression. This very serious Brunello offers a glimpse of how unique Sangiovese can be in Montalcino." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

    "The ladies of Le Potazzine have broken with the pack. They are betting on this Riserva from the warm 2011 vintage over everything else (including vintages held in higher esteem by appellation authorities). The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is indeed a sure bet if you are looking for a Brunello that will knock your socks off. This is a sharp, precise and extremely defined Sangiovese. This is an inspired wine (with a mere 3,200 bottles produced). The bouquet is slow and steady but also very effective as it comes into full focus. Red cherry, blackberry, cassis, balsam herb and spice all merge seamlessly on the nose. The mouthfeel is polished and long. You can count it in many long minutes." Robert Parker

    "Captivating scents of pressed violet, dark spice, perfumed berry, new leather and balsamic eucalyptus notes reveal the wine's elegance and pedigree even before the first sip. The full-bodied palate boasts remarkable finesse and a weightless intensity, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, black raspberry, tobacco and licorice. It's impeccably balanced, with firm polished tannins and fresh acidity. Hold for even more complexity." Wine Enthusiast
