Luigi Pira Barolo Vigna Rionda 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Barolo Vigna Rionda comes across as quite understated. An open, floral bouquet leads to finely-knit fruit in this intensely perfumed, floral Barolo. This is an especially silky, refined vintage for Pira’s Rionda. The oak is very well balanced, and everything about the wine speaks to harmony. Crushed rose petals, spices, raspberries, licorice and spices linger on the understated, classy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022...This is a head-spinning set of wines from Luigi Pira from top to bottom. I would be thrilled to drink any of these wines any day of the week. As always, Pira favors a style based on textural richness. At their best, the wines show an equal amount of elegance...94." WA 10/11 "Intense blueberries and blackberries, with hints of flowers on the nose. Full body, with big chewy tannins and lots of fruit. This needs a number of years to soften and become more integrated but it’s all there. Best ever from here? ...94"Jamessuckling.com 07/2011
