Wine Advocate

96 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a relatively new addition to the Canalicchio di Sopra portfolio, and even its modern graphic label design represents a break from the rest of the line, which has more nostalgic labels that feature Montalcino's medieval main square. The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino La Casaccia takes a little longer to open, but it ultimately reveals the elegance and energy that comes with the house style. Wild cherry, ash and balsam herb drive a long, very polished finish. The La Casaccia site is distinguished by mineral-rich clay soils, which give this wine its power and density. Production is limited to 4,133 bottles in this vintage." 02/22

Vinous Media

95+ Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino La Casaccia is aromatically stunning, blasting up mineral in style, with a dark floral and balsam lift, giving way to licorice, black cherry and hints of camphor. It gains further depth and volume the longer it sits in the glass. The textures are silken, fleshy and pliant at first, as contrasting tart red fruits and minty herbal tones come through, saturating the palate with primary concentration. This is even savory at times and displays smoother contours than past vintages, yet it’s supremely balanced and pure. Repeating minerality comes through in spades and this turns youthfully dry and perfumed, yet still juicy and classic in feel. La Casaccia is a huge success for the vintage." 12/21

James Suckling

93 Points, James Suckling, "This shows the ripeness of the vintage, with ripe-berry, cherry and floral aromas and flavors. Some cedar, too. It’s full and flavorful, with lots of chewy yet polished and focused tannins. A little dusty in texture. Drinkable now, but better in 2023." 11/17
