Italy

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 Read more »

  • Canalicchio di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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 bri... Read More

  • Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A quick note from the Benvenuto Brunello event in NYC on 1/31/13:Combined notes of charred earth, dried flowers, and dark roasted cherry on the nose. The palate is well balanced with lean black cherry, leather, and a nice aromatic finish. 92 Pts. Read More

  • Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Top notch. Drinking well on this date and solidly built for the long run. Complex, with good balance, and quantities, of acid, fruit, and tannin.1/28/09 Read More

  • Somehow, it seems this piece has fallen on deaf ears, which confuses me, because it seems like everyone is talking about 2007 Brunello di Montalcino elsewhere.  Is this not a topic of interest? If not, that's fine, but I'd like to give it another shot.So I thought I'd put it here on the forum and see if maybe it somehow got missed. http://www.sn... Read More

  • Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Pre-Sale 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Wonderful traditionally made Brunello that is obviously young but already showing great potential. Soft and brooding, it has cherry blossom and black raspberry on the nose with deeper richer fruit on the palette. The characteristic acidity is there to keep things bright with underlying spice box flavors to round out the bunch. Give it at leas... Read More

  • Canalicchio Brunello Riserva 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello Riserva showed classic Tuscan notes with sour red berries, leather, barnyard and a spicy floral perfume. On the palate, I found strawberry with wood tones, tealeaf and earth. The finish was dry with tannin but this wine should ultimately blossom into something beautiful as the tannins resolve.

  • A friend and I had a regions-of-the-world tasting, and we had a Brunello that we loved (Nardi 2003).  I paid about $37 for it, but it was on sale and is more like $60-$80.  My friend has been learning more about wine recently, and was really ecstatic about this bottle.  I told her that she has expensive taste and she's going to have to spend abo...
