CANALICCHIO DI SOPRA Brunello di Montalcino 2012

The 2012 Canalicchio di Sopra is an utterly captivating Brunello from this excellent vintage in Montalcino. While a bit reserved at first, it slowly unwinds to incredible aromas of dark cherries and red plums woven together with leather, spices, minerals, herbs, balsamic and hints of forest floor all coming together beautifully in the glass. Howvever, this is most impressive for its elegant, yet brawny structure, which demonstrates remarkable balance and finesse with a lovely touch of underlying acidity. The finish is long and polished with flavors of red fruits and leathery notes lingering on. This is already extremely compelling, however it also has the potential age gracefully for decades.
