Baricci is an historic estate in Montalcino with vineyards in some of the zones very best sites, notably the Montosoli cru, where Canalicchio di Sopra also owns vineyards. This site in the north of Montalcino makes complex, mineral, ad elegant wines, built for long ageing. The Baricci family makes their wine in a traditional way, with long macerations and ageing in large Slavonian oak casks of 20 - 40 hectolitres, so little or no influence of oak, allowing the terroir to shine through in the wines. Their Rosso is made with the same attention to detail as their fabulous Brunello. The wine is released earlier, and matures a little sooner. The 2018 is tight, but you can feel the quality of the fruit and beautiful tannins. We have enjoyed it so far, but with another year, the significant tannins will have softened a little further.
