  • The Scherrers respond personally to every email I send them.  They are ... dozen, but Chiara Boschis at Pira can't be left out, or Gianni Cannonica. Piedmont is special, but not unique. At family owned wineries--Teldeschi in DCV or Oddero in Barolo--hospitality and generosity seem to be the rule.Good saying: Love what you do and you will never... Read More

  • E Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Langhe Nebbiolo 2012

    Snoothrank:

    With awesome aromatics that savory, complex and deep with subtle woodsy red fruit aromas, wild strawberry, camphor, and just a hint of sweet, roasted wild cherry, this is absolutely alluring on the nose. In the mouth one finds a perfect middleweight Nebiolo, perhaps a bit on the sweeter side with all the fruit, camphor, and spice, and savory co... Read More

  • E Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Langhe Nebbiolo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Vines from Ravera, only eight years old ne week fermentation at a little cooler temperature than for Barolo followed by a year in second passage barrique, Sweet fruit cake aromas greet the nose with a hint of herb and some watermelon accents. Thoroughly ripe and a bit powerful in the mouth this offers emerging wild cherry fruit, with plenty o... Read More

  • E. Pira E Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Cannubi 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe fruit that is a touch jammy greets the nose followed by lots of very mineral, limestone notes along with oak that is fairly well integrated already, still obvious but in balance with the raspberry in alcohol fruit. This turns a touch balsamic with air and the oak presence increases a touch with a hint of nuttiness. Smooth, soft, and rathe... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • Very interesting and informative introduction.  Thank you very much.I ... ... strings as "Di quella pira" and "E lucevan le stelle", but that is pretty much it.  Is is possible that the word "Chiaretto" should have tipped me off to the fact that this wine is a rose?  Is there an English translation for the word "Chiaretto?"&nbs Read More

  • Pira Luigi Barbara 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Notes of sweet leather, smoky burnt marshmallow, some green cardamom and big sweet cherry fruit join lots of toasty oak on the nose. Lighter and rounder in the mouth than the 2006 with softening tannins and nice earthy, dark cherry fruit edged in toasty coffee tones. This is full in the mouth but without much detail at the moment, nice richness ... Read More
