E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Cannubi 1999

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A nose rich in sweet tobacco and maraschino cherry tempered by a touch of quinine leads to a palate with the sweet edges of toasty oak well integrated but still evident and noticeable wood tannin on the finish marring the the sweet cherry fruit. Needs time for the wood to completely integrate. 88pts

Pira is an old family of viticolturists that -between the end of '800 and the beginning of '900- became wine-producers.

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).

The ’99 Brezza Cannubi was a gorgeous Barolo with crushed red berries, roses, mineral dust, and tobacco on the nose. On the palate, it was elegant and finessed with ripe cherry fruit and minerals, which turned darker and more dramatic over time to reveal sweet balsamic notes. The finish showed red berries made tart by cheek-puckering tannin. This wine was youthful, with many years of development ahead of it.
