Dark crimson. Fresh, with fine impact. Pure fruit dominates and it’s very well balanced even without the obvious Sangiovese transparency. Very dry end. Appetising.

“Canalicchio di Sopra’s 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is tight and firm at its core, with qualities that bode very well for its aging potential. That compact core is surrounded by many thick layers of dark fruit and spice that are expressive and expansive. Those outer layers give the wine softness and some immediate accessibility, even at this early stage in its life. All summed up, this is a very complete and characteristic Brunello that offers stunning quality for medium or long-term drinking.”
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035
