E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Barolo Via Nuova 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Barolo Via Nuova opens with exquisite inner perfume and sweetness. Crushed rose petals, mint, pine, licorice and sweet red berries all lift out of the glass in a fragrant, aromatically expressive Barolo of the highest level. The 2010 has it all; perfume, fruit, intense, crystalline salinity and bracing, chalky, young Nebbiolo tannins that will help the wine age gracefully for years. Beginning in 2010, the Via Nuova is a multi-vineyard Barolo comprised of fruit from Terlo, Liste, Gabutti, Baudana, Ravera (di Monforte) and young vines in Mosconi. Chiara Boschis had trademarked Via Nuova as a proprietary name. Up until 2010 Via Nuova was an alternate name for the Terlo vineyard in Barolo. Going forward, all wines from that site must be called Terlo. In the meantime, Boschis acquired a number of small parcels, each too small in scale to be bottled separately, so she chose to make one multi-commune Barolo and keep her existing Via Nuova name. Make no mistake about it, the 2010 is very different (in a positive way) from previous years, in fact, it is one of the wines of the vintage...96" AG 01/14

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).

Barrel sample - A little less wood on the nose, still perfumy new wood top notes, over aromas of rose petals, raspberry fruit, and a touch of sandalwood. This is rather round and open in the mouth, both very transparent and rich, with amazing fruit, quite fresh plummy, with nice acidity keeps things really bright.This is packed with ripe tannins, nice high toned slightly vegetal aromatics in the mouth with a bitter orange rind note on the finish. 92-94pts

A bit chocolatey on the nose with accents of ivy, black fruit, and carob adding detail to the rather floral and high-toned nose. Here you get lots of ripeness with an underlying vegetal freshness on the powerful entry, which is followed by deep fruit on the palate that is a touch intense and yet fresh with ripe tannins and good acidity. Complexity creeps in slowly with a little mint and a little leathery and animal nuance. This is showing really compelling freshness and complexity of fruit, even if it is fairly ripe. 92pts

Healthy deep red. Sour cherry on the nose lifted by an exotic lilac quality. Silky and elegant with juicy harmonious acidity giving the intense red cherry and floral flavors excellent penetration. Quite youthfully imploded today and impressively high-pitched for the year. The fine-grained tannins are firm without coming off as hard or dry. This structured young Barolo will need patience. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
