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.
