Rare Sighting: 2016 Canonica Langhe Nebbiolo

Posted by Ian McFadden

For their sheer purity and soulfulness, Giovanni Canonica's wines have a cult following.

The amount of textural complexity and clarity that Canonica coaxes out of Nebbiolo is mind-blowing.

People have certainly taken notice. Canonica's wines are some of the hardest wines in Piedmont to find. It's a tiny estate totaling just a couple of hectares and releases rarely see the light of day.

Today, I'm excited to offer what is likely the hardest wine to find in Canonica's lineup, the Langhe Nebbiolo.

The Langhe Nebbiolo really dazzles with its finesse and precision. It has explosive, high-toned aromatics of flowers, spice and minerals.

For Piedmont, 2016 looks like a really strong vintage. The 2016 Langhe Nebbiolo definitely delivers on the vintage's promise. The wine has concentration, really nice energy and great delineation.

I'm going to wrap this up. I fully expect this to sell out quickly. Just to underscore the rarity, there's just one listing for any vintage of the wine in the U.S. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
