'Sacromonte' Rosso, Castello di Potentino, Tuscany 2016
Graham Greene, nephew of the great writer of the same name and old publishing friend approached me ten years ago about taking on the wines of Potentino, a castle and estate in southern Tuscany which he and his family had lovingly restored. Previously, its wines had been sold by the Wine Society. So, we agreed to a tasting and have been selling these wonderful cuvées ever since.
In a sheltered valley at the foot of Monte Amiato (Tuscanys highest mountain), Potentino's vineyards benefit from the minerality of this rich volcanic soil, where, at over 1,100 feet, they also profit by the cool mountain air of summer evenings. Wine has been made here since Etruscan times (circa 800 BC); nowadays, under the estates distinguished winemaker Charlotte Horton it is still done so by hand. And the results are simply some of the finest sangiovese and pinot noir we've ever tasted.
