Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2019
A 50/50 blend of Canalicchio’s two vineyards, the clay-rich Canalicchio and the mineral-laden Montosoli, this cuvée Brunello is all about terroir, and that’s especially true in the benchmark 2019 vintage. Candied cherries, balsamic herbs, violet petals, and dusty minerals frame the transparent Brunello fruit in this resonant, super-satiny wine. Canalicchio’s 2019 Brunello is a model of purity and sheer class, exhibiting grainy tannins, frisky acidity, nicely weighty fruit, and elegant minerals in perfect harmony, and it builds to a sustained, finessed finish that just won’t quit. Stash this Brunello in your cellar for a couple of years and enjoy for decades!
