* 60 hectares of land on the north-eastern side of the Montalcino hill, 19 of which are planted with vines, in a context rich in biodiversity, scenic beauty and Unesco heritage since 2004: this is the beating heart of Canalicchio di Sopra today. Canalicchio di Sopra is the story of a company that has covered the history of Montalcino viticulture over the last 50 years, its growth and its worldwide success: the first bottle of Brunello di Montalcino "Canalicchio di Sopra" was produced in 1966. In 1967 Canalicchio di Sopra is one of the 12 founding brands of the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino.
Canalicchio di Sopra is today the result of three generations of passionate winemakers, inextricably linked to Montalcino and its land. From the intuition, the resourcefulness and courage of Primo Pacenti, who founded the company in 1962, to the stubborn pursuit of quality and meticulous work in the vineyard of the son-in-law Pier Luigi Ripaccioli who has joined him since 1987, a thread common links the qualitative development of our company. Since 2001, the nephews Francesco, Marco and Simonetta carry out a respectful work combining tradition and innovation, love and respect for the territory they rely on to produce classic wines.
