Winemaker's Notes

Strong ruby red tending towards garnet. Aromas that are elegant, fruity, intense and resistant with hints of forest floor. A well-structured wine, elegant and harmonious, and extremely persistent. Made with 100% Sangiovese.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a huge wine. Waves of dark red and black fruit saturate the palate in this generous, explosive Brunello. The firm yet well-integrated tannins are buried beneath a wall of fruit in this generous, flashy 2007. The 2007 spent 36 months in cask, all of which is handled beautifully. This is another terrific showing from Canalicchio di Sopra. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. "
93 Points

"Medium red. Lovely floral perfume lifts lightly candied aromas of raspberry, cherry and leather; very sangiovese. Silky, intense and penetrating, with lovely harmonious acidity for the year giving grip and lift to the complex red fruit, leather and underbrush flavors. Boasts a nearly glyceral sweetness and finishes with suave, even tannins and terrific fruity persistence."
93 Points

"Sporting beef bouillon and balsamic notes, this red's mix of cherry, iron, leather and tea flavors is backed by a sinewy frame. The tannins leave a drying impression, but this has character, so be patient. Best from 2014 through 2024."
92 Points

"Aromas of blueberries and minerals, with hints of flowers. Full body, with silky tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Chewy, yet polished. Better in 2014. "

Learn About Sangiovese

Sangiovese (SAHN-gee-oh-VAY-zee) Blood of Jove (literally translated) The principal grape of Chianti - in fact, the principle grape of all of Tuscany - has had its ups and downs. For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more. Sangiovese re...
