Chiara Boschis e Pira ‘Via Nuova’ Barolo DOCG 2014 - Piedmont, Italy


The Story

The Boschis family purchased E. Pira & Figli in 1981, propelling the young Chiara into a role significantly different to that intended by her economics degree. The family was, until recently, proprietors of Barolo’s historic Giacomo Borgogno estate (Chiara originally learnt her wine-making skills from her brothers) but she brought her considerable determination, charm, patience and confidence to bear on raising the quality and image of Pira to that which it enjoys today. Her philosophy is to craft wines that marry the extraordinary power of Barolo with approachability, promoting great aromatics, lush textures and elegance. Chiara has recently been joined by her brother Giorgio, and the two have expanded their Barolo vineyards to now include Mosconi and Ravera in Monforte and Gabutti in Serralunga.

M+Q Notes

The Nebbiolo grapes for this wine comes from the very small vineyard Via Nuova. It ages for 2 years in French oak and 1 year in bottle before release. Pungent aromas of rose, raspberry and dried herbs. Vibrant flavours of blackberry, plum and earth. Grippy tannins, generous acidity and a rich body.
