91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Rosso di Montalcino requires a bit of time to blossom in the glass; yet patience is rewarded, as an air of smoky minerals and peppery herbs slowly evolves into a perfumed display of wild strawberries, rose hips and flowery undergrowth. This is soft and supple, seeming almost fleshy at first, yet it gains harmony through a savory mix of mineral-tinged red berries and spices. A subtle film of fine tannin lingers, yet the mouth waters for more, as this literally buzzes with residual energy while inner florals slowly fade. (EG) 91+ Inner quote mark (1/2021)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Needs air to reveal its pure cherry, strawberry, floral and tobacco flavors. Light in weight, yet has fine intensity, a core of ripe fruit and a long, vibrant finish. (BS) Inner quote mark (8/2021)

Canalicchio di Sopra is a reference point producer in Montalcino, with critics and collectors alike routinely heaping praise on their top-end bottlings. The Rosso di Montalcino is a sterling entry-level introduction to this producer, providing outsized quality for the price. The 2019 vintage in Tuscany was characterized by extreme heat and drought but also by beneficent rain showers in July that rescued the vintage in most DOCs. Producers often noted loss of yields due to heat stress, but the quality of the wines is looking to be exceptional.
