Der Brunello di Montalcino repräsentiert die Essence des Weinguts Canalicchio di Sopra: Er ist elegant, tief und kraftvoll und bringt die Frische der Sangiovese Traube zur vollen Geltung. Der Brunello di Montalcino entsteht aus Trauben der älteren Reben aus dem Bereich Montosoli, mit einem sehr mineralischen Galestro Anteil. Dazu kommen Trauben aus dem Bereich Canalicchio di Sopra der durch tiefe Böden mit Lehmanteil charakterisiert ist. Der Ausbau erfolgt für 3 Jahre in traditionellen Fässern aus slavonischer Eiche. Die Weine zeichnen sich durch eine große Mineralität und Saftigkeit aus, unterstützt von einer ausgezeichneten frischen Säure, die unter anderem auch die große Langlebigkeit der Weine unterstützt. Kerin O'Keefe 2018 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 96/100 The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino from Canalicchio di Sopra boasts great aromatics of wild rose, new leather forest floor and perfumed berry that align with whiffs of spice. It’s savory and loaded with finesse, featuring juicy red cherry, botanical herb, white pepper and iron mineral notes framed in taut, lithe tannins. Blending grapes from their Montosoli and Canalicchio vineyards created an ideal, natural balance. Drink through 2038. 14.5% abv. Kerin O’Keefe November 2022 ©   Vinous, Eric Guido 2018 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 94/100 The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is understated in the glass, as swirling brings forward nuances of mint, white pepper, dusty black cherries and flowery underbrush. This is a soft and delicate Brunello from Canalicchio di Sopra, also quite mineral in style, impressing with its smooth contours and finesse, while showing rose-tinged red berries and hints of spice. A coating of gentle tannin lingers through the medium-length finale, along with hints of licorice, as the mouth is left watering for more. The 2018 is a total charmer with a beautiful balance, bolstered by the juice that would usually go into the Riserva.   Monica Larner, 2018 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 94/100 Release Price, $99, Drink Date 2025 - 2040 The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is elegant and tight with dried cherry, earthy root, pressed violet and exotic spice. The wine's long mandatory aging period has added to its aromatic intensity and textural weight. You also recognize that special complexity that comes with Sangiovese when grown in this sunny appellation on the southern side of Tuscany. This is a solid wine with 36,237 bottles released.
