Luigi Pira Barolo Vigna Rionda 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2001 Barolo Vigna Rionda, an attractive dark ruby, shows its pedigree, with a beautiful nose of spices and menthol. It is concentrated yet silky on the palate, revealing elegant notes of dark, backward fruit, licorice, tar, chocolate and minerals, with an exquisitely long finish. I find it more understated and nuanced than the Marenca. Aged in 100% new barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. (Oct 2006)
