Canalicchio di Sopra | 2019 Brunello di Montalcino

The 2019 from Canalicchio di Sopra is in our minds one of the Brunellos of the vintage.  Winemaker Francesco Ripaccioli was quite rightly giddy with excitement when we last caught up with him and to taste: “There is a purity of fruit to the 2019s that makes them shine, but it is a deeply complex fruit: this is a layered, serious wine with dark balsamic undertones”. We love the sleek, chiselled structure and gleaming freshness that underpins the incredible depth of fruit and that indicate its significant ageing potential.
