Expert Review:
GARY WALSH- 92 Points, Coal, dried herb and floral perfume, ripe red berries. It’s medium-bodied, has density and chew, good depth, but doesn’t feel heavy, almost a peppery feel to tannin, some orange peel and dried herb and an ironstone feel to tannin on a pretty long finish. Should be very good with a few more years on it.

Founded by Primo Pacenti in 1962, in 1987 Primo was joined by son-in-law Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, and since 2001, Canalicchio di Sopra has been in the highly capable hands of Pier Luigi's children: Francesco, Simonetta and Marco. The Rosso di Montalcino and the Brunello di Montalcino are based on the parcels of Canalicchio and Montosoli, on the northern side of Montalcino, and which combined total 19 hectares planted. All wines are aged in medium-sized Slavonian oak botti. The soils of the Canalicchio parcels are largely clay with pebbles and a strong mineral content, resulting in wines of aromatic intensity, opulence and minerality. It is the extraordinary elegance, latent power, balance and silky tannins of the Casaccia parcel which sees it bottled separately. The Montosoli soils are marl with very high mineral components, clay loam texture with higher levels of lime, with the pebbly texture increasing the pH. The resultant wines show great structure, minerality and sapidity.

Region: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
