Brunello di Montalcino DOCG CANALICCHIO DI SOPRA
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.
