Canalicchio di Sopra

Region: Toscana


In 1962 Primo Pacenti founded Azienda Agricola Canalicchio di Sopra. Three generations live at the estate side by side, founder and grandfather Primo, Father Pier Luigi Ripaccioli and grandchildren Simonetta, Marco and Francesco, with the common aim of producing quality wines
Their first bottle of Brunello di Montalcino was produced in 1966 and in 1967, Canalicchio di Sopra became one of the twelve founders of the ‘Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino’.


Situated in the northern side of the commune of Montalcino, the farm extends for about 60 hectares, 19 of which are cultivated with vines and 2 with olive groves. The family owns vineyards in two of Montalcino's most famous sub-zones: Canalicchio di Sopra and Le Gode di Montosoli. The different exposures and the geological differences of the two soils are reflected in the grapes.
