Canalicchio di Sopra was already making elegant, aromatic Brunellos on the cooler North side of Montalcino (Montosoli and Canalicchio vineyards) when Francesco Ripaccioli assumed the winemaking duties there at the age of 20. Still only 32 years old, he has established himself as one of the appellation's rising stars, having instituted strict practices in the cellar, sustainable and organic practices in the vineyard, and a program to isolate distinct vineyard parcels as individual crus, to be bottled separately.

For a peek at Brunello's future (with a respectful nod to its past), the 2013 Calicchio di Sopra is an excellent choice.
