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

The 2008 Barolo Via Nuova is round, seamless and totally impeccable. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint and spices are some of the nuances that emerge from the super-sexy, refined Via Nuova. The integration of oak, fruit and structure is fabulous. Brig... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 E Pira & Figli (Chiara Boschis) Barolo Via Nuova 750ml

Very dark red with ruby tones. Less expressive on the nose than the Cannubi, offering aromas of medicinal cherry, camphor and coffee.

A ripe, exotic style, showing black currant, blueberry and cherry flavors. The bright fruit quickly gives way to stiff tannins, yet this is balanced, building to a long, fruit- and spice-filled finish. Very polished. Best from 2014 through 2028.

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.

The 2007 Barolo Via Nuova shows more verve and freshness than the Cannubi, which is not entirely surprising, given the sheltered exposure of this site. A lively vein of minerality supports gorgeous dark berries, flowers, sweet spices, sage and rosemary. Over time, the wine’s inner perfume blossoms in the glass, the tannins soften a touch and the radiant fruit becomes even more expressive. The generous quality of the vintage as expressed by this wine is truly striking. The Via Nuova is delicious today, and while it is far from a crime to open a bottle today, it will be even better in a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2022.

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
