Wine Description

This Brunello di Montalcino from the Tuscan winery Canalicchio di Sopra is produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes grown in the Canalicchio and Montorsoli hills; the soils are clayey and rich in mineral components and this will give a certain flavor and a slight acidity to the wine during the aging phase. After the manual harvest, the grapes subjected to pressing are then fermented in steel tanks at a controlled temperature; maceration on the skins for 25 days follows. Refinement, on the other hand, requires a stay of 3 years in Slavonian oak barrels.

 

Characteristics of this Tuscan wine

Upon organoleptic examination this wine shows a bright ruby red color; on the nose the finesse and depth emerge immediately with hints of small red fruit and flowers, to then move on to spicy aromas of licorice and aromatic herbs. The tannin is elegant and fine and the persistence is very long.

 

Suggested food pairings while tasting this Tuscan wine

Perfect wine with both grilled and stewed red meats; try it with blue cheeses and mushroom risotto too. To be served at a temperature of 16-18 ° C in a not very large glass.
