One of the great names of Montalcino, offering beautiful fruit clarity and complexity. Canalicchio di Sopra create some of the most profound wines of this region, with serious structure and tannins set against a compellingly bright and nuanced expression of red fruits and spice. Typical yet so much better than its competitors, this is truly a premium choice in Brunello.


94/100 Michaela Morris, Decanter UK (2014 Vintage)
"Francesco Ripaccioli called the 2014 harvest never-ending. After dropping any unhealthy grapes mid-September, 80% of what remained was picked for the Rosso on 25 September. The Brunello harvest, beginning on 5 Oct, consisted of only the smallest, most concentrated bunches, which in other years would 'give marmalade', notes Ripaccioli. The resulting wine is one of the successes of the vintage. Quite piercing and perfumed, its floral and red fruit tones are countered by touches of smoke and earth which linger remarkably. There's plenty of nerve and fine-boned tannin to support. Without lacking substance, this captures Sangiovese's glorious lightness of being. Drink 2019 – 2029."


93/100 Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 Vintage)
"The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino definitely shows the more accessible and easy-drinking side of this celebrated Sangiovese-based appellation in southern Tuscany. The wine offers all the prerequisite Brunello characteristics of wild berry and tobacco with pressed violets and fresh potting soil. However, those characteristics are presented at a notch or two of decreased intensity. This is quality common to the great majority of Brunellos I tasted from the 2014 vintage. I recommend this wine to lovers of Brunello looking for a wine to drink within the next ten years. Some 15,037 bottles were made. Drink 2020 – 2033."


17.5/20 Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com (2013 Vintage)
"Pale to mid ruby. Very pure, direct, aromatic nose of definitely ripe fruit – impressive! Good build with light tannins and just the right amount of acidity. Arguably more Sangiovese than old-school Brunello but none the worse for that."
