Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

From 10+ year old vines around 300m, this Brunello blends fruit from of a blend of two different soils: clays rich in Magnesium, Iron, and Manganese from the Cru Canalicchio; and galestro soils with a very high mineral component, characteristic of the Cru Montosoli. It was fermented in stainless, with 3 weeks on skins, prior to 36 months in Slavonian oak casks of 2500 and 5000L.

“As you drive downhill from the hamlet of Montalcino on its north side, you pass the Canalicchio di Sopra winery, which is located in a shallow, sun-lit basin of vines. This estate is meticulous and studied in its winemaking philosophy, and the 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is an expression of that concentration. This warm-climate Brunello reveals awesome purity and intensity with wild cherry, almond and lilac spread over a tonic, mid-weight finish. This wine awards plenty of elegance in a vintage that was not easy and not prone to such nuance. Production is exactly 39,989 bottles. Drink 2024-2040.” - 94 points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, February 17, 2022.
