Tasting Notes

Each six pack case contains two bottles of the following wines:

Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018
“Vibrant red. Flinty red berries, violet and spices dominate the knockout nose. Then very pure, boasting a steely core of red fruit and floral flavors that linger impressively on the refined finish. One of the best Rossos of the vintage.” - 93 points, Ian D’Agata, Vinous.com, March 2020.

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013
"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. Drink 2020-2035.” - 96 points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, February 28, 2018.

Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015
“Ripe berry and cherry aromas with hints of spices and cedar. Dried flowers, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Fantastic richness and depth. Long, long finish. Best ever. Try after 2022.” - 97 points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, November 26, 2019.

In 1962, Primo Pacenti founded Azienda Agricola Canalicchio di Sopra, in Toscana's stunning Siena countryside. Situated in the Northeast side of the Montalcino hill, the farm extends for nearly 60 hectares, 20 hectares of which are cultivated with vines and 2 hectares with olive groves.

From the very beginning, Primo believed in the land, and its suitability for high quality, elegant, and age worthy wines. The first bottle of Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino was produced in 1966, and in 1967, Canalicchio di Sopra was one of the twelve founders of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino.

Today, three generations live and work on the estate, inherently connected to the lands, and united by Primo’s aim: to produce the highest quality Montalcino possible. Primo’s son-in-law, Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, began working alongside his father in 1987, and Primo’s grandchildren, Simonetta, Marco and Francesco, joined the management team in 2001. Each generation has brought fresh, new inspiration to the family, while always respecting the region’s proud history.
