Potazzine is the italian word for very colorful and vivacious birds which inhabit the Tuscan countryside. In Montalcino, grandparents and parents alike often use Potazzine as a term of endearment for children. In fact, it was their maternal grandmother who affectrionately gave this nickname to Viola and Sofia who are the daughters of Gigliola Giannetti.

The link with the two Potazzine not only features in the name of the winery, but also in its entire evolution. It was created in 1993, when Viola was born, and expanded by a further two hectares in 1996, when Sofia came along. This brought the total area registered for the production of Brunello and boasted by the estate today, to five hectares.  Two distinct vineyard plots owned by the company: Le Prata, exposed to the south-west at an altitude of 507 meters above sea level and La Torre with exposure to the south-east at 420 meters above sea level, which, after having been vinified and aged individually, it arrives in the bottle in a single solution. The rest are located in the area of Sant’Angelo in Colle.
