Giovanni Canonica Barolo Paiagallo 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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
