Drink now through to 2026. No need to decant before serving.

Rosso di Montalcino is often nicknamed “baby Brunello” for its resemblance to its bigger brother, Brunello di Montalcino, and this bottling from Canalicchio di Sopra is an exceptional example of the style. The grapes for this wine are predominantly sourced from the Ripaccioli family’s exquisite Sangiovese vines which are planted on clay soils their Canalicchio vineyards.

These younger vines help to produce a wine that is exuberant and fresh with an abundance of ripe red fruit flavours and gentle tannins. The wine is aged in large traditional oak casks as well as standard-sized French oak barrels to add a subtle spiced character and a well-rounded, silky smooth texture. Lively and elegant, this is an ideal wine to serve alongside pan-fried tuna steaks, fresh pasta with a rich ragu. or even a light summer salad of tomato, mozzarella and plenty of basil.

Set in the heart of the Brunello di Montalcino appellation, Canalicchio di Sopra was founded by Primo Pacenti in 1962. The estate is still owned by the original family and is currently run by his three grandchildren, Simonetta, Marco and Francesco, who inherited Primo’s incredible passion for winemaking.
