Vintner Chiara Boschis took over this historic estate after the death of its founder Luigi Pira. She continues in a precise Barolo tradition that pays attention to quality of fruit and vineyard designations. The Cannubi cru, for example, is celebrated for the elegant nature of its wines. Here you will encounter fine aromas of orange blossom, wild berries, white mineral and delicate floral notes. M.L. The 2005 Barolo Cannubi comes across as decidedly fresher and more powerful than the Via Nuova, particularly in its red fruit, which shows considerable depth and richness. The wine is sweet, long and pure. Notes of menthol, herbs, and spices make an appearance on the finish but those qualities find a counterpoint in the wine's density and richness, such that the slight herbal qualities that are present are not at all unpleasant in the wine. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. Blueberry and fresh raspberry aromas follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a fruity, crisp finish. This is pure and beautiful. Best after 2012. 665 cases made. -JS


Winemaker's Notes:

The Via Nuova site located just up behind the winery was documented as far back<br/>as 1904, flanking the then new path to Novello; its vines are younger though,<br/>at 16 years. The modern vinification, carried out in a recently renovated<br/>cantina, is tightly controlled & constantly checked, with Chiara a keen<br/>analyst. The hulking rotofermentors still dominate the diminuitive cellar,<br/>though perhaps they're less frenetic than in the past. There's also less french<br/>oak now lavished on the wines, ranging from 30 - 70% new for Via Nuova. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
