Canalicchio di Sopra was founded in 1962 by Primo Pacenti and today the estate is cared for by his three grandchildren, Simonetta, Marco and Francesco , who have inherited his love for the vine. The family works a total of 19 hectares of vines of which 16 hectares are within the prestigious Brunello di Montalcino appellation. These vines are split between two areas; 6 hectares of Sangiovese vines are planted on rocky schist soils in Gode di Montosoli while a further 10 hectares are planted on clay soils in Canalicchio.
This combination of different Brunello terroirs helps to create a rich, multidimensional wine which combines bright red fruit with hints of dried Mediterranean herbs, leather, and baked earth. The family ages this wine in 2500 and 5000 litre Slavonian oak casks for 36 months to ensure all of the flavours are fully-integrated and there’s a silky smooth texture from the first sip.
On the palate there is a medium body, elegant tannins, and vibrant streak of acidity which will help this wine to age and evolve gracefully in the cellar over the next decade. For those who don’t have the patience to wait that long, this wine is also ideal to enjoy now alongside a classic Italian dish like fresh pasta served with a rich ragu or aubergine parmigiana.
