2003 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
This family-run estate makes an excellent Brunello from its 15 hectares of vineyards in the Canalicchio zone of Montalcino.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 91+ Points
Saturated deep red. Aromas of crushed and dried fruits, flowers and incense. Fat, broad and rich, in a distinctly lush style. Initially showed a chewy fruit skin quality and some tougher tannins but revealed lovely vinosity and a fresh bitter cherry character with aeration. A serious, structured, energetic wine with plenty of dimension and length.
