Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

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.

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.

This is spicy in style, with vanilla, cedar and clove aromas and flavors accenting a core of cherry and tobacco. In the end, theres a purity to the fruit, but it needs time to find its balance. Structured and long. Best from 2014 through 2027. 420 c... Wine Spectator. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2005 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 750ml

The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is terrific. Freshly cut roses, sweet red fruits, tobacco and licorice emerge gracefully from this refined, utterly impeccable Brunello. Sweet, elegant tannins frame the fruit beautifully through to the finish.... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
