Product reviews
Intriguing 100% Pinot Noir vinified in white. A delightful soft pink like a pale winter sunset. The nose is elegant and full of fruit and fragrance, ample, persistent and fresh. With dry, well rounded, neatly balanced with notes of summer fruit and nutty kernels. Amazing food wine.

Fermented and matured in stainless steel. LYNCURIO is the lynx-stone, a mythological curative stone, the colour of pale amber strongly associated with the god of wine, Bacchus.

The vineyard at the Castello di Potentino is situated on the slopes of the highest peak in Tuscany, Monte Amiata, an extinct volcano. The estate is located about 30miles from the Montalcino DOCG area, separated by the river Orcia, in the recently created (1998) Montecucco DOC.

The low, sheltered valley provides summertime hot days but cold nights as the cool air comes down from the mountain. The earth is volcanic, geologically very new, mineral rich and the basin-like shape has of the estate vineyard has helped avoid erosion over the millennia and . This minerality creates a notably sapid and fine wine, with subtle bouquets and a rich but not heavy body. Vines have gown here since the time of the Etruscans and the location has helped protect from the impact from intensive monoculture. Only wild yeasts are used in the production of the wines and alongside large oak (5hl), minimal fining and filtration and low levels of added sulphur the potential of the estate’s grapes are allowed to shine.
