About the winery ... Elegance is the essence of their production philosophy, of the Crus where they have been cultivating their vineyards for half a century, of the microclimate that mitigates their grapes, of the production choices they make in the cellar. Making wine with passion, respecting the territory, enhancing Sangiovese through their Cru to make it unique and different. Since 1962 in Canalicchio di Sopra they have produced wine like this!
92 Point - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This is a terrific wine that is one big step above your standard Rosso and one tiny step below your standard Brunello. The Canalicchio di Sopra 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is a fresh and versatile wine. The 2018 vintage was cool and had more rainfall than average. Windy conditions dried and helped to concentrate the fruit right before harvest. This wine is made from a selection of the estate's youngest vines, with about 90% of the fruit coming from the Canalicchio area and 10% from Montosoli. This wine moves across the palate with steely precision, breaking up any cheese, butter or olive oil flavours along the way. It offers a snappy, lean to medium weight drinking style with lots of freshness and enough texture to withstand some near term cellar aging.
