Deep, ruby red color with hints of red cherry and violets on the nose. The palate has a wonderful structure and voluptuous mouthfeel with crushed raspberry, dried herbs, and minerality taking you to a very long finish.
Potazzine is the Italian word for very colorful and vivacious birds which inhabit the Tuscan countryside. In Montalcino, grandparents and parents alike often use Potazzine as a term of endearment for children. In fact, it was their maternal grandmother who affectionately gave this nickname to Viola and Sofia who are the daughters of Gigliola Giannetti.
The two Potazzine birds on the label represent the name of the winery, but furthermore represent its entire evolution. It was created in 1993, when Viola was born, and expanded by a further two hectares in 1996, when Sofia came along. This brought the total area registered for the production of Brunello to five hectares. The training system is guyot with a density of 6,000 plants per hectare.
