      Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2019 (BIO)

      Rich and fruity is the well-done Dolcetto by Chiara Boschis. Violet red, in the nose blackberry, candied cherries and some plum compote. On the palate a soft fullness with a wonderful fresh acidity, its medium face makes it an indispensable companion for light meat dishes and pasta. SUPERIORE.DE

    • 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

      "The 2012 Barolo Mosconi is one of the big surprises of this tasting. This is a gorgeous expression with a deep and enduring sense of balance. The wine offers excellent intensity with black fruit and spice, nicely contrasted against more subtle tones of licorice, red rose and polished river stone. The tannins are firm and tight." Robert Parker

      "Very delicate and aromatic with dried flowers and raspberry, blackberry undertones. Full body, yet balanced and very refined. Love the white pepper and berry aftertaste." James Suckling

    • Barolo "Mosconi" DOCG 2016 (BIO)

      Barolo “Mosconi” DOCG 2016 (BIO)

      Barolo from the Mosconi single vineyard of the same name presents itself powerful, muscular and full of opulence. 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 at the same time it is highly authentic, completely in the style of Chiara Boschis, who has delivered something really great with the 2016 top vintage! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich shining ruby red. Shows itself in the nose multilayered and open-hearted with nuances of ripe forest berries, mint, blood oranges, in the reverberation of rich strawberry jam. Opens on the palate with elegant and fine fruit melt, polished and clear, tightly woven tannin supports the drink, salty on the final." Falstaff

      "Mid to deep crimson. Very pretty nose of earthy, complex fruit with subtle oak note and hints of pine. Succulent and supple red-fruit palate with great focus. Delicious, chewy tannins. Ends a little mouth-watering." Jancis Robinson

      "The vivacious Chiara Boschis has been a modernist producer for 25 years, although she now uses far less new oak than in the past. She is best known for her Cannubi, but the Mosconi, from 1ha within this Monforte vineyard, can be just as fine in some vintages. The colour is deep for Barolo, the cherry and blackberry nose generous and opulent. It's a plump, rich, full-bodied and very concentrated wine that's assertive and youthful now - but in balance. Darker-fruited than most Barolos, it's structured, taut and long." Decanter

      "A mix of cherry, menthol, loam and tobacco flavors are hung on the burly frame of this red. Though difficult to see this evolving, all of its elements seem to be in the right proportions, they are just not integrated yet. Fresh and focused. With air, the purity of the fruit is more evident." Wine Spectator

      "The 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a gorgeous wine made all the more remarkable given that Mosconi can't really be said to be a top-level site. Dark and imposing, the 2016 captures all the breadth and tannic clout that are such signatures of this site. This is an especially brooding, virile Barolo, but Chiara and Giorgio Boschis clearly brought out all the best the vineyard had to give." Vinous

      "The E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a little wider and richer compared to the Cannubi, with bigger fruit, more sweetness, spice, grilled oregano and a touch of crushed hazelnut. Despite the wide net of aromas offered on the bouquet, this wine shows a very sharp and focused approach with elegantly linear tannins and matching acidity. There is a lifted quality to both the nose and the mouthfeel that gives this wine beautiful momentum and length. Mosconi is one of the headline vineyards of Monforte d'Alba." Robert Parker

      "A full-bodied, chewy 2016 with a solid structure of ripe fruit and intense tannins. Lots of plums, walnuts, hazelnuts and light chocolate. It’s very powerful. Very classic structure. From organically grown grapes. Needs time to resolve the powerful tannins. Try after 2022." James Suckling

    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
