Tasting Notes

"The Canalicchio di Sopra 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a beauty. It offers a brilliant interpretation of a warm and sunny vintage from cool, mineral-rich soils in an area with steep shifts between day and nighttime temperatures. This is one of those special wines in which the vintage characteristics fit the territory with the precision of a jigsaw puzzle. The bouquet is fluid and complex with tart cherry fruit, cola, licorice, aniseed and blue flower. That aniseed comes around a second time. The arrangement and order of those aromas changes with each successive swirl of the glass. This Riserva is fermented in stainless steel and aged in Slavonian oak casks for 36 months."

98 Points - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, November 2020

"An opulent red with black-cherry and plum aromas and flavors with undertones of orange peel and porcini mushrooms. It’s full-bodied and layered with depth and intensity throughout. Solid and layered. Very structured. Give this at least three to four years of bottle age."

98 Points - James Suckling, December 2020

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.
