"The Gorelli company is a small star that shines on the Montalcino hill. Gorelli is one of newest wineries in Montalcino but owner/winemaker Giuseppe Gorelli is no newcomer to the region. Born and bred in Montalcino, Giuseppe worked with the grand master of Sangiovese, Giulio Gambelli, at the Consorzio di Brunello di Montalcino for fifteen years before returning to his family’s winery, Due Portine. He then went on to establish the renowned Le Potazzine. In 2017 he struck out on his own and leased six hectares north of the town centre. Gorelli has leased 6ha north of the town centre comprised of 1.10 hectares for Brunello, 2.2 for Rosso di Montalcino and 3 for IGT Toscana. The vineyards, in the coolest part of the DOCG (dare we say sub zone!) at an altitude of 340 metres and facing north east, yield refined and beautifully perfumed Sangiovese." - Importer Notes

"Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. Very youthful and lifted with lots of cherry fruit on the nose. Polished, succulent cherry fruit with a thick layer of fine, chewy tannins underneath. Seems ready but needs to lose its puppy fat. Drink 2025 to 2035." - 17++ out of 20, Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
