Canalicchio di Sopra 2018 Rosso di Montalcino
Canalicchio di Sopra is one of Noble Grape's favourite producers of Brunello di Montalcino and they also make one of the best Rossos too. Their vineyards are located in the cooler northern zone of Montalcino in 2 crus called Canalicchio di Sopra and Montosoli. Their Rosso di di Montalcino is released earlier than their Brunello, made to drink younger and offers fantastic value for money. Elegant, refined and perfumed with just enough tannin to give it a dense and rich mouthfeel, but will soften in a few years revealing notes forest fruits, cedarwood, wood polish. The 2018 is bright and savoury and will drink well from 2022 onwards
"This is a terrific wine that is one big step above your standard Rosso and one tiny step below your standard Brunello. The Canalicchio di Sopra 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is a fresh and versatile wine. The 2018 vintage was cool and had more rainfall than average. Windy conditions dried and helped to concentrate the fruit right before harvest. This wine is made from a selection of the estate's youngest vines, with about 90% of the fruit coming from the Canalicchio area and 10% from Montosoli. I had a glass with a delicious plate of vegetarian lasagna. This wine moves across the palate with steely precision, breaking up any cheese, butter or olive oil flavors along the way. It offers a snappy, lean to medium-weight drinking style with lots of freshness and enough texture to withstand some near-term cellar aging. This Rosso was bottled in November 2019 and released in January 2020. Not counting large format bottles, some 40,800 regular-sized bottles were produced."
