    • Barolo "Mosconi" DOCG 2014 (BIO)

      Barolo “Mosconi” DOCG 2014 (BIO)

      Barolo Mosconi is beautifully aromatic. Elegant bouquet of mineral-rich limestone soils, powerful, rich and juicy on the palate, the tannins well interwoven, structure and length exemplary. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant ruby with a slightly brightening edge. Compact and dense nose, full-bodied of blackberries and dark cherries, with some liquorice and truffle. Firm and gripping on the palate, shows a lot of grippy, dense tannin, dark berry fruit, in the finish salty and long, leathery." Falstaff

      "The 2014 Barolo Mosconi is the most robust and structured of the three Barolos. Chiara Bochis believes in making her single-vineyard wines even in a difficult vintage such as this. She rejects the idea of blending all her fruit together to make a single wine. Indeed, her cru wines are very distinct. Each shows its individual characteristics with greater precision, I would argue, in this slender and more ethereal vintage. The 2014 vintage is a natural spring board for highlighting vineyard personalities. This is a cool vintage, but Mosconi surprises the senses for the plump ripeness of its dark fruit favors." Robert Parker

      "Plenty of dried berries and herbs. Some meat, woody spices and a wealth of fresh red and pink roses, making this very fragrant. The palate has assertive acid cut and impressive depth. The elegant yet firm tannins hold the red-plum finish long. A great result with real tension." James Suckling

      "A mix of cherry, eucalyptus, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors are gripped by dense, dusty tannins. On the darker side, with a kernel of sweet fruit on the finish. Fine intensity." Wine Spectator

      "Chiara Boschis’ take on Monforte’s Wagnerian terroir translates it into a minerally, fruit-driven symphony with refined tannins and graceful flavour. This is a brilliant compromise between acidity and sweetness." Decanter

    About the winemakersE. Pira & FigliPiedmont
    E. Pira & Figli

    After the death of Luigi Pira, good advice was expensive because his sisters could not continue the traditional family business in the middle of Barolo. But after about a year, the Piedmont winery was sold to Luigi's long-time friends, the Boschis family. The previous owner had already been a myth during his lifetime and the last winemaker in Barolo to mash his grapes with his feet. When Chiara Boschi, a very young and energetic woman, took over the business from her parents in the eighties, she quickly picked up on the achievements of the noble vineyard in the Langhe.

    Chiara is passionate about her work, which is sometimes very hard, and accompanies all the phases between the vine and the bottling line with attention. In the course of time, the winemaker has refined her wine style and developed it into a balanced harmony. Their plants are smoother today and reach drinking maturity a little earlier. The wines are ageing capable and convince in the course of the years by an unusual complexity and depth. To the E. Pira Winery & Figli counting magnificent vineyards is worked in an extremely environmentally friendly way, chemical substances are taboo in all plots. The grapes are always of the highest quality.

    The intelligent, technically very experienced and always friendly landowner has joined the Piedmontese group "Langa in" which, among other things, revolutionised Barolo through shorter maceration times and the use of barriques. When Chiara publicly presents her own labels, she always seems very distinguished and eloquent to her interlocutors. But their attention is not only focused on the excellent wines. Together with some other disciples, the winemaker also produces Castelmagno, the most famous cheese in Piedmont, which is coveted by gourmets. (superiore)

    "The range of wines available from the vineyards is excellent, from the famous Cannubi to the interesting Via Nuova and the Mosconi, which comes from an important plot of land in the municipality of Monforte d'Alba was born."Gambero Rosso
