Canalicchio di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep and ripe and quite aromatic on the nose with wild cherry, tree bark, leather and beetroot all coming together with a hint of jamminess. With impressive energy and cut on the palate, this opens with really clear flavors of strawberry and cherry fruit that gain power on the palate but remain well defined. Nice ripe tannins and juicy acids bring everything together nicely. Perhaps a touch simple today but I can’t imagine this not improving. 90pts

Canalicchio di Sopra:
In 1962 Primo Pacenti, a lover of the land with a knowledge of its products, founded Azienda Agricola Canalicchio di Sopra. Situated in the northern side of the Municipality of Montalcino and in the middle of the tourist itinerary of Val d’Orcia, the farm extends for about 60 ha, 15 of which are cultivated with vines and 2 with olive groves.

In 1962 Primo Pacenti, a lover of the land with a knowledge of its products, founded Azienda Agricola Canalicchio di Sopra. Situated in the northern side of the Municipality of Montalcino and in the middle of the tourist itinerary of Val d’Orcia, the farm extends for about 60 ha, 15 of which are cultivated with vines and 2 with olive groves. Three generations live here side by side with the common aim of producing quality wines: the generation of the grandfather, Primo Pacenti, who founded the farm and managed it until the 1990’s, as well as participating actively in the social life of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino; that of the father, Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, who with the grandfather has undertaken to increase the quality by proposing careful and meticulous work; that of the grandchildren, Simonetta, Marco and Francesco who joined the management in 2001, bringing with them new ideas and new technologies always in respect of ancient methods and customs. The vines grow in two of the zones with the highest vine growing and wine making vocations in Montalcino: Canalicchio di Sopra and Le Gode di Montosoli. The different exposure and the geological differences of the soils produce different Sangiovese grapes where balance and power compensate one another in the wine cellar through the patient work which always seeks the best blend of tradition and innovation.

Light ruby. Nose features raspberries strawberries and mineral scents. Subtle and refined palate with ripe red fruit and licorice flavors. Concentrated fruit carries through to a soft finish. This refreshing wine would pair well with light pasta and pizza dishes. Alex Lallos.
