2013 Canalicchio Di Sopra Rosso Di Montalcino image

(88 Points)  The 2013 Rosso di Montalcino shows soft tones of red cherry, wet earth, raspberry and blanched almond. There's a great sense of tightness and energy here that you don't get with many of the other Rosso wines of this warm vintage. The wine is aged one year, in both French and Slavonian oak respectively. There's isn't much heft in the mouth, but you get just enough to pair with egg fettuccine with butter and grated Parmigiano.



To Francesco Ripaccioli the 2010 vintage is historic and offers a similar alignment of the perfect growing conditions seen in 1997. "The only difference," he says: "Is we have 13 more years of growing experience." That experience shows in 2010 and Canalicchio di Sopra is today among the most articulate narrators of the Sangiovese story.   eRobertParker.com #217, Feb 2015



 



Wine Watch Tasting Notes:  Bright red berry fruit cherry, notes of wild sage and fine herbs, raw steak and light floral notes, very pretty bouquet.  Smooth and silky on the palate with fine tannins and a good amount of light red berry fruit with a clean fresh finish, light spice and earth tones.  Finish 35+ Excellent
