Some big news at Canonica: he’s added a parcel of vines in Grinzane Cavour and will have another 800 bottles of Barolo, thus increasing his production by about 30%!
I tasted Canonica 2010 at the cellar twice this spring, and as always the wine calls to mind some of my favorites, showing great finesse and a bit of edgy rusticity that adds complexity – think B. Mascarello, G. Rinaldi. It’s very classic aromatically; medium body with great freshness and intensity; savory with a bit of balsalm, mint, liquorice, and beautiful, rich wild cherry fruit. Overall a great success, reflecting the fine balance in the vintage’s best wines. JW
