Piemonte (Canonica, Gea & Busso)
A tasting box with some of Piedmont’s finest and a perfect Autumn companion. For many years, Giovanni Canonica has been one of Barolo’s best kept secrets, but the extremely high quality of his classic old school Barolos has made them some of Piedmont’s most coveted among connoisseurs. The quality of Fabio Gea’s wines is equally indisputable, and while respecting traditions they simultaneously test the boundaries to an extreme degree, which has made Fabio an icon in record time. Piero Busso is perhaps flying a bit under the radar, but that does not change the fact that he is one of the best Barbaresco producers there is. He makes traditional Barbaresco, but in a style that can easily be enjoyed young. We have rounded down the price a bit for this tasting box.
