E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Cannubi 2003
"Dried flowers and plum follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Pretty and balanced. Refined for the vintage. Not jammy or too concentrated. Best after 2009...90" WS 10/07."Boschis’ Barolo Via Nuova is typically leaner than the Cannubi, but in 2003 the heat has filled out this wine nicely, while still leaving it with the freshness that is the hallmark of this site. It reveals gorgeous purity in its dark cherries, violets, menthol and chocolate, with terrific vibrancy on the palate and a long, elegant finish. This stylish Barolo needs another few years to come together and should drink well to age 15, perhaps beyond. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018. Chiara Boschis has once again turned out two very pretty Barolos in 2003. The wines have a fair amount of new oak, but with time, the specific terroir qualities of the sites she works with always come through. These 2003 Barolos are a great example of how a less-well regarded vineyard outperformed one of the region’s most historic sites in this freakishly hot and dry vintage….92" RP 10/07
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Editorial Reviews for E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Cannubi
Bottle opened for 2 days The nose here is very intense with a layer floral quality very strong on violets then sweet, chinato like tones that recall cola and root beer. 2+ Very fresh in the mouth with ripe tannins and good acidity 2+ Lovely mineral and licorice tinged midpalate has nice strawberry fruit tones and a menthol top note 2+ Finishes long with more menthol tones and shows a touch of heat 2 88pts
Chewy, with lots of tannin, but soft. Reasonably balanced.
