Lots of blackberry, tar and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a long finish. Chewy. Best after 2010. 330 cases made.
There is something rustic yet deeply satisfying about Canalicchio di Sopra's highly idiosyncratic Brunellos that makes them compelling to drink. The intense 2001 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is loaded with black cherries, earthiness, tobacco and spices. A dark, brooding, powerful wine, it isn't especially approachable today, but it should offer terrific drinking with another year or two of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
