Tasting Notes

"Lifting up with gorgeous floral perfumes and hints of white smoke, the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino La Casaccia from Canalicchio di Sopra keeps you at the edge of your glass. It opens up with a dark and dramatic display of balsamic-tinged black cherry, sage and Indian spice, contrasted by savory notes of tobacco, rich earth tones and flowery undergrowth. There’s an amazing density of fruit here, offset by salty minerals, zesty acids and a hint of sour citrus. The textures are velvety-smooth, yet the expression remains feminine and lifted. In fact, you can hardly notice its underlying tannic heft until it’s too late, as the 2016 La Casaccia seems to youthfully fold in on itself, halting the expression but promising over a decade of further development."

The Producer

Canalicchio di Sopra

Canalicchio di Sopra is the tale of a winery that covers the history of winemaking in Montalcino over the last 50 years, its growth and its worldwide success: the first bottle of Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino was produced in 1966.

Today, Canalicchio di Sopra is the result of three generations of enthusiastic winemakers forever connected to Montalcino and its land.

Since 2001, grandchildren Francesco, Marco, and Simonetta have continued with respectful work uniting tradition with innovation, love and respect for the territory that they rely on to produce classic wines.
