Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG (2012)
With our Riserva 2012, we wanted to emphasize the characteristics of the vintage endeavouring to make a balanced and elegant wine in a vintage with a climate that was extreme for many reasons. A test of courage that was warranted by the quality and the depth of the grapes from the two oldest vineyards on the estate which make up this Riserva: Vigna Vecchia Mercatale 80% and Vigna Casaccia 20%. Emphasizing the dualism between strength and elegance, freshness and sweetness, fire and ice which the vintage gave us. We didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to make a Riserva that features freshness and minerality in a vintage that was considered to be hot and droughty like 2012.
