  • Produced only for great vintages and in limited quantities from the oldest vineyards on the estate, it represents the flagship of quality on our estate: an expression of the concepts which we hold most dear at Canalicchio di Sopra - Elegance, Terroir, Depth. At least 80% of the grapes come from a single vineyard: Vigna Vecchia Mercatale.
  • Soil featuring a prevalent clayey component with considerable mineral content which characterize wines with great sapidity. The clayey component favours wines of great structure. Facing north and subject to eastern winds that favour the exaltation of balsamic aromas typical of the Crù, wines from this vineyard achieve that optimal balance between fruit and acidity, essential requirements for long ageing.
  • Fermented in steel tanks with fermentation temperature control, daily soft pumping over. Maceration on the skins for 28 days before being aged for 42 months in Slavonian Oak casks.
  • 99 POINTS! Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 2010 Vintage

    "The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is one of my favorite wines of the year. It gets as close to Brunello perfection as vinously possible. Fruit is sourced exclusively from the estate's oldest vines in the Vigna Vecchia Mercatale vineyard, the oldest Canalicchio cru. The vines were planted in 1987-1988. They are in their prime production years right now. This is first time the Riserva is made exclusively from that site. The depth of this wine is extraordinary. The wine starts with a playful offering of red fruit and cherry. Like many of the wines from this vintage, the bouquet takes a while to arrive at full intensity. That margin should shorten as the wine continues its cellar aging and evolution. Yet, the slow start to the bouquet is ultimately what drives your interest in this wine. The mouthfeel is exceptional with tannins that are both silky and firm at the same time."
