2017 Giovanni Canonica Barolo Paiagallo
I love the vineyard, and feel it’s under-rated in the pecking order of Barolo crus.
These wines are rare, and decidedly individual. Ripe and perfumed, red fruits, toasted almond, sweet roses. Fleshy but fine, incredible succulence, length is great, and it’s very clean with it. Gentle chalky touch on the finish. Expressive and individual. You’ll likely ask me about warmth from alcohol, but it’s hardly noticeable. Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
