Wine Advocate 93 Points
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a huge wine. Waves of dark red and black fruit saturate the palate in this generous, explosive Brunello. The firm yet well-integrated tannins are buried beneath a wall of fruit in this generous, flashy 2007. The 2007 spent 36 months in cask, all of which is handled beautifully. This is another terrific showing from Canalicchio di Sopra. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 93 Points
Medium red. Lovely floral perfume lifts lightly candied aromas of raspberry, cherry and leather; very sangiovese. Silky, intense and penetrating, with lovely harmonious acidity for the year giving grip and lift to the complex red fruit, leather and underbrush flavors. Boasts a nearly glyceral sweetness and finishes with suave, even tannins and terrific fruity persistence.
Wine Enthusiast 93 Points
Opulent tones of toasted espresso bean and soft chocolate fudge play a supporting role to bold berry and dried raspberry. Background floral tones of dried lavender and red rose. There’s a touch of earthiness, too, with button mushroom and forest floor. Tannins are nicely polished and firm. Streamlined, elegant.
Wine Spectator 92 Points
Sporting beef bouillon and balsamic notes, this red's mix of cherry, iron, leather and tea flavors is backed by a sinewy frame. The tannins leave a drying impression, but this has character, so be patient. Best from 2014 through 2024.
James Suckling 92 Points
"Aromas of blueberries and minerals, with hints of flowers. Full body, with silky tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Chewy, yet polished. Better in 2014."
Canalicchio di Sopra is a family business going back several generations. Dominic has been representing this quality producer since 1979. Canalicchio di Sopraʼs 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is an intense, full-bodied red that is simply captivating for its seamless dark fruit and superb depth. Rich, round and delicious, this racy Brunello offers plenty of dark fruit with sweet scents of licorice, leather and spices that linger on the long, refined finish. Clean notes of minerality give the wine superb balance. This is easily the most elegant, refined Brunello I have tasted yet from Canalicchio di Sopra and is one of the highlights in 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2022.
