Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2001, 750mL (WA91, ST92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

750mL

Vintage: 2001
Region: Italy
Appellation: Brunello di Montalcino
Condition: nl

WA91, ST92
Rated 91 points by 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. I recently had the opportunity to taste several vintages of the Brunello, which was a great opportunity to assess recent vintages as well as glean some insights into how the wine ages. From vintage to vintage the wine showed its characteristic notes of scorched earth and ripe dark fruit. With a few years of bottle age the wines often begin to display attractive, heady white truffle overtones. The house favors cask-aging for its Brunello and the wines are made in a fairly traditional style. The medium- to full-bodied 2001 Brunello di Montalcino is rich, plump, and bursting with flavor, showing subtle, delicately woven notes of earthiness, tobacco, smoke, minerals and plenty of dark cherry fruit supported by firm yet fine tannins. It is sure to improve with a few years of cellaring but it is quite impressive even today. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.`
