E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Cannubi 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

E. Pira & Figli is a very important name in the history of Barolo. The Pira family, whose members have been vignerons for generations, started producing and bottling wine at the end of the 19th century. When the Pira lineage ended tragically with the death of Luigi Pira, the estate was sold to the Boschis family of Giacomo Borgogno & Figli. Chiara Boschis took over the reins in 1990 with a clear vision of what she wanted to accomplish to marry the extraordinary power of Barolo with approachability, enticing elegance, and lush, intense aromas. She vinifies exclusively from proprietary vineyards, located in the very best crus of Barolo: Cannubi, San Lorenzo and Via Nuova, comprising a total of 14 acres. Annual production is a miniscule 2,000 cases. This is truly a rare gem of an estate.

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).

Good bright, dark red. Primary black cherry and dark berry aromas are lifted by mint, spices and flowers. Elegant, perfumed and very floral; begins juicy and tight but expands nicely in the mouth.

Bright and tonic, with vibrant fruit tones of cassis and dried raspberry followed by exotic spice and smoked bacon, this is an elegant and complex Barolo.
