E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Barbera Barbera d'Alba 2006

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The Barbera is ruby red in color with hints of violet. In the bouquet it is intense and complete with scents of plum and blueberries. The palate is full with sensations of fleshy, fresh fruit and at the same time lively bright acidity. -winery

Pira is an old family of viticolturists that -between the end of '800 and the beginning of '900- became wine-producers. This prosperous patrirachal family unit declined as all its male components started to die young one after another, until the tragic end of Luigi Pira, a noble man who believed in the importance of traditions: the last one to tread the grapes and to make wine without mechanical devices. About a year after his death, his sisters, who couldn't manage the family business but were willing to carry on the tradition, sold the farm to their old friends family Boschis. Now Chiara Boschis, after a degree in Economics, manages the farm following her passion for wine and believing in this "great small farm". The output is still very small (about 12.000 bottles each year) and the wine is exclusively made from grapes grown in our vineyard ( about two and a half hectares located in Connubi, one of the best vineyards in Barolo).
