Wine Profile

ratings

Canalicchio di Sopra's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is tight and firm at its core, with qualities that bode very well for its aging potential. That compact core is surrounded by many thick layers of dark fruit and spice that are expressive and expansive. Those outer layers give the wine softness and some immediate accessibility, even at this early stage in its life. All summed up, this is a very complete and characteristic Brunello that offers stunning quality for medium or long-term drinking.

tasting notes

Canalicchio di Sopra” Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013 is the result of the climatic characteristics of the vintage, characteristics which, for their steadiness and for the low average seasonal temperatures, are able to completely exalt the terrain and the location where the grapes grow. A wine that we believe unites elegance, depth, minerality, and sapidity.Grapes from the two estate Crus were used to make this wine (Canalicchio 40% and Montosoli 60%): the choice to increase Montosoli over the traditional 50/50 is due to the better concentration in the grapes in this area.The balance that we looked for in this wine, a dear concept to Canalicchio di Sopra, is based on continuity between nose and mouth based on freshness and florality. The existing and distinguishing acidity seems to be part of a long silky tannic motif.
