      Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2020 (BIO)

      Rich and fruity is the well-made Dolcetto from Chiara Boschis. Violet red, on the nose blackberry, candied cherries and some plum compote.

      Barolo “Via Nuova” DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      The grapes for Chiara Boschis' Via Nuova come from selected sites in the three districts of Commune di Barolo, Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba. Delicate, slightly minty bouquet of medicinal herbs, wild berries and wild cherry. Powerful on the palate, with a lot of structure and elegance. A very impressive Barolo, which perfectly performs the balancing act between tradition and modernity. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This classic wine represents a traditional blend of sites including Barolo (Terlo and Liste), Monforte d'Alba (Ravera and Mosconi) and Serralunga d'Alba (Gabutti and Baudana). The organic E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2017 Barolo Via Nuova reveals ripe cherry and raspberry that greet you with a bright, fruit-forward bouquet. I feel the hot-vintage fruit ripeness more in this release than I did in the smaller releases of Mosconi or Cannubi. The wine is slender and elegant in terms of mouthfeel, with a good, polished feel and some subtle bite from the tannins on the close. There are some grassy notes and a spicy point of crushed black pepper as well." Robert Parker

      "An expressive nose of rose, cherry, strawberry and eucalyptus doubles down on the palate, while the dense structure lends support. This red is balanced and long, with excellent intensity and freshness." Wine Spectator

      "The 2017 Barolo Via Nuova is stellar. In 2017, the Via Nuova is a bit nervous, the sign of a Barolo that is going to need a number of years to unwind. Bright red-toned fruit, chalk, crushed rocks, mint and white pepper add pretty aromatic top notes. As always, the Via Nuova is the most taut Barolo in the range." Vinous

      "Gorgeous aromas of dried flowers and strawberries with some cherries and hints of iron. Full-bodied. Chewy and creamy-textured at the same time. Attractive berry and walnut aftertaste." James Suckling

    • Barolo "Mosconi" DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      Barolo “Mosconi” DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      Barolo from the Mosconi single vineyard of the same name presents itself powerful, muscular and full of opulence. Rich shining ruby red. Rich scent of eucalyptus, wild rosemary, plum and black cherry. Deep and powerful on the palate with beautiful spicy accents, dense tannin and very juicy structure. For us, this Barolo belongs to the top class of the appellation, it carries its great weight with elegance and is at the same time highly authentic, completely in the style of Chiara Boschis, who has once again delivered something really great here! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Made with organically grown clones of Michel and Lampia, the E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2017 Barolo Mosconi softly presents bright berry aromas, raspberry, wild cherry, crushed limestone and delicate floral tones of lilacs and violets. Like other wines from this hot vintage, this expression from the Mosconi cru in Monforte d'Alba has that unique floral signature that is precious and unexpected. The wine shows great depth and balance with a pretty intensity that spreads over the palate." Robert Parker

      "The 2017 Barolo Mosconi is a powerful, brooding wine. Black cherry, gravel, dried herbs, scorched earth, spice and leather add to an impression of gravitas. This is an especially somber, potent Barolo that needs time to soften. Even so, it will always be a brute. The substantial finish is a thing of beauty. The Barolo Mosconi emerges from the estates oldest vines, which are 70-80 years old, and is aged in barrique." Vinous

      "Very fresh, sweet raspberries with some floral undertones follow through to a full body with fine, creamy tannins that flow long and linear through the middle of the palate." James Suckling

      Barolo Cannubi DOCG 2017 (BIO)

      Cannubi is the most filigree, almost feminine Barolo in the exceptional line-up of Chiara Boschi's noble wines. Silky, fragrant and full of grace, it unfolds its bouquet of roses, spices, undergrowth and wild cherries. When drunk, it is racy, elegant and delicate with a fine sweetness and depth. If you give it the necessary time and air, you will discover more facets and a harmony with every sip that will put a satisfied smile on the face of even die-hard Barolo connoisseurs. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Floral, juniper, strawberry, cherry and green tea aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this taut, sleek red, which is firm too, yet the core of ripe fruit prevails midpalate and should serve this well over time." Wine Spectator

      "Chiara Boschis is a historic proponent of organic farming, and she lobbied to make the entire Cannubi cru a certified organic vineyard. Her 2017 Barolo Cannubi shows terrific balance and clean intensity in a vintage that presented quite a few challenges across the appellation due to the heat and drought, along with other issues such as an unexpected frost in April, but that caused the biggest damage to the lowest elevations. The Cannubi is less overtly fruity than the blended Via Nuova or the Mosconi. Instead, it has a more prominent saline imprint with mineral and crushed limestone. However, the quality of the tannins in this release is superior and silkier, and that added structure and focus give the Cannubi the longest drinking window in my opinion of these three new releases. 4,000 bottles were produced." Robert Parker

      "The Barolo Cannubi is absolutely gorgeous in 2017. Hot and brutally dry conditions notwithstanding, the Cannubi is creamy and sensual in the glass, with impeccable balance, soft, racy edges and tons of allure. It is easily one of the most sensual, compelling Barolos of the year. Ripe dark red/purplish fruit, spice, mint and cedar meld into the beautifully textured, resonant finish. I am so impressed with the wine's freshness. Perhaps the anti-hail netting helped keep some shade on the fruit. What a wine." Vinous

      "Plums and ripe strawberries with some crushed-stone undertones. Full-bodied and layered with round, rich tannins and an intensely fruity finish. But then, some fine tannins that are cashmere-like." James Suckling

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

    After Luigi Pira's death, good advice was expensive because his sisters could not continue the traditional family business located in the middle of Barolo. But after about a year, the Piedmontese winery was then sold to Luigi's long-time friends, the Boschis family. The previous owner had already been a myth during his lifetime and was the last winemaker in Barolo who still mashed his grapes with his feet. When Chiara Boschis, a very young and energetic woman, took over the business from her parents in the 1980s, she quickly took up the achievements of the noble wine guards in the Langhe.

    Chiara does her sometimes very hard work with great passion and attentively follows all phases between the vine and the bottling line. Over time, the winemaker has refined her wine style and developed it into a balanced harmony. Today, her growths are smoother and reach drinking maturity a little earlier. The wines are capable of ageing and convince with an unusual complexity and profundity over the years. In the magnificent wines of the E.

    The intelligent, very knowledgeable and always friendly estate owner has joined the Piedmontese group "Langa in", which, among other things, has revolutionised Barolo through shorter mash fermentation and the use of barriques. When Chiara presents the in-house labels in public, she always appears very distinguished and eloquent to her interlocutors. But her attention is not only focused on the excellent wines. Together with a few other disciples, the winemaker also produces Castelmagno, the most famous type of cheese in Piedmont, which is much sought-after by gourmets. SUPERIORE.DE
