The Rich History and Significance of Canalicchio di Sopra Wines

In the heart of the Italian region of Tuscany, there exists a vineyard that has dedicated itself to the artistry of winemaking. Canalicchio di Sopra, renowned for its exceptional wines, has chosen to focus exclusively on one remarkable vine: Sangiovese. Through years of meticulous cultivation, they have come to understand the intricate nuances and expressions of this grape within their unique crus, which are closely intertwined yet distinct from one another. It is within these differences that Canalicchio di Sopra has built its identity.

The Unique Terroir and Vineyards

Spanning over 19 hectares, Canalicchio di Sopra's vineyards are nestled within the prestigious "Canalicchio" and "Montosoli" crus. Each vineyard possesses its own character, bestowed by different soils, exposures, and microclimates. The result is a collection of vineyards that are unequivocally exceptional, offering a harmonious blend of elegance, power, minerality, sapidity, acidity, and the purest expression of the fruit. These remarkable qualities are the fruits of the labour meticulously invested in the vineyards.

A Philosophy Rooted in Elegance

Elegance is at the core of Canalicchio di Sopra's production philosophy. It emanates from the deep-rooted traditions of the Crus that have been their home for the past five decades. It is nurtured by the gentle microclimate that caresses their grapes, and it permeates every decision made in the cellar. With an unwavering passion for winemaking, Canalicchio di Sopra strives to respect the land and elevate Sangiovese through their unique Crus, creating wines that are unparalleled and distinctive. This has been their unwavering approach since the winery's inception in 1962.

A Blend of Tradition and Innovation

In 1995, the Canalicchio di Sopra winery found its new home in Loc. Casaccia. It stands as a testament to the coexistence of tradition and innovation, seamlessly melding the two in perfect harmony. At Canalicchio di Sopra, the focus is on enhancing what the earth offers without altering its innate qualities. Every aspect of the winemaking process, from the vineyards to the pursuit of cleanliness and distinctiveness in their Crus, is meticulously organized to elevate their Sangiovese to its fullest potential.

The Artistry of Winemaking

Canalicchio di Sopra's winemaking journey begins with the careful selection of grapes, harvested from the vineyards surrounding the cellar. Each berry is chosen with utmost precision. Fermentation takes place in steel vats under controlled temperatures, allowing for the extraction of elegance and personality from the grape skins through daily pumping over. However, the true mystique lies within their aging cellar, where medium-sized Slavonian oak barrels embrace the Sangiovese, nurturing and refining its essence.
