Expert Review:
KERIN O'KEEFE- 97 Points, Intense aromas of underbrush, wild berry, new leather and pipe tobacco lead the way on this fragrant Brunello. Full bodied and elegantly structured, the savory palate features ripe morello cherry, licorice and truffle before a black-tea finish. Firm, refined tannins and fresh acidity keep balanced and give it an ageworthy structure. Drink 2024-2036.

Founded by Primo Pacenti in 1962, in 1987 Primo was joined by son-in-law Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, and since 2001, Canalicchio di Sopra has been in the highly capable hands of Pier Luigi's children: Francesco, Simonetta and Marco. The Rosso di Montalcino and the Brunello di Montalcino are based on the parcels of Canalicchio and Montosoli, on the northern side of Montalcino, and which combined total 19 hectares planted. All wines are aged in medium-sized Slavonian oak botti. The soils of the Canalicchio parcels are largely clay with pebbles and a strong mineral content, resulting in wines of aromatic intensity, opulence and minerality. It is the extraordinary elegance, latent power, balance and silky tannins of the Casaccia parcel which sees it bottled separately. The Montosoli soils are marl with very high mineral components, clay loam texture with higher levels of lime, with the pebbly texture increasing the pH. The resultant wines show great structure, minerality and sapidity.
