Canonica Giovanni Barolo Paiagallo Premier 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Jammy red berry fruit pops with spicy depth and deep balsamic notes on a nose that already shows great integration. Fine ripe tannins greet the palate in this pretty big wine that retains great tension. There is a lot of body and backplate density here, though this is not terribly weighty. Already showing great wild cherry fruit up front accented with a hint of citron peel and a touch of floral complexity on the back palate this is going to be long, full and powerful when fully mature. Even with all the power evident here this remains transparent and bright in the mouth. Really delightfully clear and fresh. 93pts

Minty and intense on the nose with lots of floral and licorice aromas layered over all sorts of raw Middle Eastern spices. Powerful and elegant in the mouth, there’s lots of depth here to the intense fruit. Very fresh in the mouth with nice tannins, a little rounded but not soft, this shows a beautiful expression of fruit, not as precise as the 2008 but more intense and complex, with huge follow through that drops off a touch easy on the finish. Air brings out rich wild cherry fruit, that smells so fresh, in the mouth, full of nuanced woodland flowers and soil and vegetable full of dirt aromas. This shows the soft tannins of the vintage but not with the excessively easy structure. 92pts

Liquory and very aromatic on the nose with gentle fruit aromas that are very perfumed with floral, musky base notes. In the mouth, this shows some crazy wild cherry fruit with lovely tannins and bright acids. There’s a bit of rusticity here but also a ton of finesse. It gains complexity with air, as well as a fine firmness and hints of grass and bitter cherry on the palate. The purity of this is really impressive. 93pts
