    Founded by Primo Pacenti in 1962, in 1987 Primo was joined by son-in-law Pier Luigi Ripaccioli, and since 2001, Canalicchio di Sopra has been in the highly capable hands of Pier Luigi’s children: Francesco, Simonetta and Marco.

    The Rosso di Montalcino and the Brunello di Montalcino are based on the parcels of Canalicchio and Montosoli, on the northern side of Montalcino, and which combined total 19 hectares planted. All wines are aged in medium-sized Slavonian oak botti. The soils of the Canalicchio parcels are largely clay with pebbles and a strong mineral content, resulting in wines of aromatic intensity, opulence and minerality. It is the extraordinary elegance, latent power, balance and silky tannins of the Casaccia parcel which sees it bottled separately.

    Produced from vineyards which are over 10 years old, Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino represents the essence of their concept of terroir: an expression of elegance, depth, and freshness of their Sangiovese, able to unite its balsamic quality of the north side of Montalcino with the opulence of their lands.

    The 2017 vintage is of great personality, generous on the nose, enfolding and sensual. A freshness in the mouth and its surprising balance making it a wine of great pleasure. Elegant and silky tannins give depth and vibration to the wine.
