2012 Canonica Barolo Paiagallo

Posted by Ian McFadden

Canonica turns out some of the most captivating and soulful Barolos around.

Every time I taste one of Canonica's Barolos, I'm blown away by their purity and their textural complexity.

The only downside is that Canonica’s holdings are tiny. Every time we offer Canonica's Barolo Paiagallo, it disappears quickly.

In 2012, Canonica’s Barolo Paiagallo possesses nuanced complexity with a radiant energy and lifted elegance. In this vintage especially, there's a stunning spectrum of aromatics and detailed notes of herbs, flowers, earth and vibrant red fruits. There's amazing clarity of expression and harmony.

Canonica’s Barolo Paiagallo comes from a mere 1.8ha in the Paiagallo vineyard. Canonica’s methods are super-traditional- minimal sulfur, foot-pressed grapes, indigenous yeasts, and aging in old oak “botte.” Even the labels are applied by hand. All of this results in one of the most authentic and compelling wines in all of Piedmont.

As we mentioned before, Canonica's Paiagallo is very limited. We're only offering this to a small group of Barolo supporters. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
