Debuting Canalicchio di Sopra’s New Cru Brunello Release!
February 19, 2020
A Note from Sergio

Through the twinned skills of great viticulture and great winemaking, Canalicchio di Sopra rose from poor sharecropper to prosperous producer. Like other winemakers whose families eked out a living in Montalcino for decades, Primo Pacenti relied on the fruits of the land, his know-how, and the luck of his vineyard's terroir. Primo taught his winemaking knowledge to his son-in-law, Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, who taught his children, who carry on the traditions of the proud, self-reliant man who founded the Canalicchio estate about 55 years ago.

Canalicchio di Sopra consistently makes Brunelli that bring together accessibility with longevity, but lately, this winery has seriously upped its game. Ripaccioli has always been a thoughtful winemaker, a meticulous winemaker, and a principled winemaker. Recent vintages, however, have revealed that he's also an artist, and he's approaching his wines with flair, vision, and that magical x-factor that turns really good wines into great wines.

Today, I'm excited to announce that with the 2015 vintage Canalicchio di Sopra has a brand-new Brunello bottling, its cru Brunello La Casaccia (and there's another cru coming with the 2018 vintage to anticipate). Even more exciting, today's offer debuts this new 2015 release, alongside the estate's wonderful 2015 cuvée Brunello. 2015 saw an outrageous vintage for Brunello, and these two 2015 Canalicchio di Sopra wines are utterly gorgeous. You do not want to miss them!

Enjoy!

Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2015 375ml
Price: $69.99

2015 saw a remarkable, ripe vintage that ended in lush, rich wines with both keen, fresh acidity and high alcohol--Canalicchio di Sopra’s ’15 Brunello embodies its banner vintage with verve, intensity, and depth. Juicy black cherries and sumptuous blackberries dance against a savory backdrop of warm earth, cedar, smoky minerals, and wild herbs, all offset by subtle wildflowers and sweet baking spices. This entrancing Brunello unspools with a creamy, rich mouthfeel as it reveals layer after layer of flavors that are supported on a framework of fine-grained tannins, vibrant acidity, and elegant minerality. The spicy finish lingers in the mouth for minutes! A blend deriving from the estate’s high altitude vineyards, grapes ferment in temperature-controlled vats, and the wine ages for 36 months in barrels, followed by a year in bottle before release. Canalicchio Brunello consistently offers a tremendous price-to-quality ratio, and the 2015 bottling is an outstanding evocation of its banner vintage! more info

Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino La Casaccia 2015 750ml
Price: $199.00

A tremendous representation of its banner vintage, the ’15 Brunello La Casaccia layers its succulent red and blue fruits with Mediterranean scrub, balsamic herbs, wildflower petals, licorice, and dried fleshy fruits in a wonderfully precise, dazzlingly complex nose. Firm, elegant tannins meld with vivid acidity in the wine’s dense yet delineated palate. Kaleidoscopic and lingering, this wine’s sneakily powerful finish seems to last for minutes. Cellar for a couple of years and then enjoy for decades! 2015 sees the inaugural vintage of Canalicchio di Sopra’s cru Brunello La Casaccia bottling; coming from a very special parcel with clay-rich, mineral-laden soils, this Brunello offers serious structure paired with opulent fruits and satisfying heft. more info
