- Giovanni Canonica is a winemaker that needs no introduction to Piedmont aficionados or too many fine wine collectors. Giovanni Canonica produces his wines in his tiny cellar right under his Agriturismo in the heart of Barolo. The tiny production, half of which is allocated to the Japanese market, sells out immediately.
