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 2010
“The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino will blow you away. This is a delightful expression that boasts its extreme quality from the minute the wine is poured from the bottle. As you should expect, it just gets better and better with each additional minute in the glass. It opens to a vibrant dark ruby color and blackish-garnet hues. The bouquet is ever changing and shows a long succession of aromatic characteristics that rage from dark fruit, plum, spice, leather, licorice, red rose, balsam and grilled herb. It’s textbook Brunello from a great vintage and this side of the appellation (on the northeastern side) performs fantastically in 2010. This beauty should hold fifteen years or more.” 2017 -2030
