The Winemaker’s Release, Castello di Potentino 2010

75cl bottle: £20.95

Case of 12 75cl bottles: £251.40


The Winemaker's showtime wine has just been released by Potentino, it is made in tiny quantities and is an extremely special parcel of wine. This Tuscan superstar is specially aged in bottle in the Potentino Cellars until Charlotte, the Winemaker, decides it has reached the right moment of evolution and is ready for proper aging. The wine is a celebration of the mysterious processes that occur within the bottle after the barrel. This is a cut above the other brilliant wines of Potentino. Stock is very limited and if you are a fan of Tuscan wine, this is a must.


Our Tasting Notes

Intensely floral, with violet and rose notes, sage, savoury and wild penny mint. The palate is dry, complex and extremely sublimated, with fine web-like acidity and subtle but resonant tannins.

Castello di Potentino is an ancient castle built on an Etruscan site. It lies in a secret valley in one of the last undiscovered corners of Tuscany – Monte Amiata. The medieval building is surrounded by unspoilt countryside, dotted with the vines and the ancient olive trees used for the estate’s small production of high quality wine, grappa and oil. Bought and restored in 2000 by the Greene family, today the castle is operating as a 'dynamic cultural centre' which makes exceptional wine!
