Francesco Ripaccioli continues his work to further define the unique parcels within each of his vineyards, and to use them accordingly to create wines that are unmistakably Northern Montalcino in character with stunning balance and structure. One of the original Brunello wineries, it takes its name from the Canalicchio or little stream that lies above (Sopra) the stunning new subterranean winery where the Casaccia cru is produced. They also have vines on the facing Montosoli hill. Vines are farmed organically although not certified and the family history in the region is carried aloft by the assiduos knowledge and feel for the fruit that they continue to pursue.
Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 150cl 2018
“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.” 2025-2031

“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.” 2025 – 2040
