CANALICCHIO di SOPRA ROSSO di MONTALCINO 2015 is available to buy in increments of 1
A serious Rosso that is very close in style to its wonderful big brother, the classic Brunello di Montalcino. From the younger wines of the estate, this Rosso style is about ripe and silky red fruit with nuanced complexity, backed by an assertive and firm but "sweet" tannin and acid structure. 
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​2015 can be considered a perfect vintage where Sangiovese succeeds in uniting the characteristics of freshness with those of power and concentration just as can only be done in Montalcino. As for all great vintages, we have decided to produce our Rosso di Montalcino from the youngest vineyards only, leaving the grapes in the vineyards that are over 10 years old to age a few more years in oak barrels in order to produce “Canalicchio di Sopra” Brunello di Montalcino and our Riserva. The youngest vineyards have a greater abundance of fruit and sweeter and silkier tannins even after a year of ageing in wood: for this reason, they are best expressed in Rosso di Montalcino. 2015 comes as an important Rosso di Montalcino in its structure and concentration, characteristics that may bring Brunello to mind. Tannic sweetness and depth are the characteristics of this Rosso di Montalcino, which will remain one of the most important versions ever produced at our winery."
