The 2015 Canalicchio di Sopra, "La Casaccia" Brunello di Montalcino was a Merchant's Pick

Brunello Special • 100 pts • "...one of 2015’s top ten Brunellos"

October 01, 2021

"The intensity of fruit is staggering here... There’s a breadth of flavor to the palate that will take your breath away."  James Suckling

That assessment is spot on!

Canaliccio, a Tuscan name synonymous with the great estates of Montalcino, has picked the perfect vintage to release its inaugural La Casaccia single vineyard Brunello.  

The wine impresses with refinement and grace without sacrificing depth or intensity.

"... dried peaches, dried strawberries, red licorice, red-plum compote and glazed red cherries, in rapid succession. There's a breadth of flavor to the palate that will take your breath away; muscular tannins draw in deeply set cherries, melding it together in a glistening coating of acidity, which only helps to carry it longer still. The finish is nearly endless. A stunning new single vineyard from Canalicchio di Sopra."  James Suckling

Perhaps it's the iconic micro-terrior of Canalicchio's parcels with clay composition that make it such a standout. 

Perhaps it's the historic 2015 vintage, a "fairy-tale... one of the best vintages in the appellation." James Suckling

Regardless, this first release is a blockbuster you will enjoy now and for years to come. 

Enjoy!

“Intensity of fruit is staggering here.”

James Suckling • 100 / 100

"The intensity of fruit is staggering here, as this stacks up dried peaches, dried strawberries, red licorice, red-plum compote and glazed red cherries, in rapid succession. There's a breadth of flavor to the palate that will take your breath away; muscular tannins draw in deeply set cherries, melding it together in a glistening coating of acidity, which only helps to carry it longer still. The finish is nearly endless. A stunning new single vineyard from Canalicchio di Sopra."
