    Barolo Pira DOCG 2015

    "Bright ruby red. Barolo Pira oscillates between fresh fruit and mild spice. Grown on 25-60 year old vines, the flawless cherry fruit is illuminated by ethereal top notes, toasted almonds and juniper berries alternate with rosemary, sour cherry and sloe. The nose continually defoliates with aeration, shifting like a kaleidoscope. On the palate, the ripe tannins take over and lay the velvety foundation on which the fruit blows on parade to flow straightforwardly and transparently across the drinker's palate with oriental-like spice. Notes of sandalwood, juniper and incense are underpinned by fine cherry notes, the precisely crafted acidic nerve is perfectly enveloped by the tightly woven tannin, giving it freshness and drinkability. A wine of uncomplicated distinction with superb length. Please get the big glasses out of the cupboard. Timely caraffing is strongly recommended." Sebastian Bordthäuser (Sommelier und Wein-Journalist)

    "The 2015 Barolo Pira is lifted and gracious in feel. In this vintage, the Pira is notably perfumed and restrained. Rose petal, mint, crushed flowers, dried cherry, star anise and cinnamon are some of the many notes that grace this delicate, lilting Barolo from Luca Roagna. The tannins are persistent and fine, lending a slightly nervous feel." Vinous

    "Supple and polished, featuring the essence of cherry and strawberry fruit, accented by menthol, mineral and sage flavors. This shows intensity, with a tightly wound structure that is so well-integrated you don't notice it at first. Plays out on the linear profile with echoes of fruit, mineral and Langhe scrub." Wine Spectator

    "Leather, forest floor, rose and camphor aromas take shape on this fragrant red along with a whisper of tobacco. Polished, linear and savory, the elegantly structured palate features juicy cranberry, orange zest, licorice and a hint of baking spice. Taut, refined tannins provide support while fresh acidity keeps it nicely balanced." Wine Enthusiast

    Reviews for Barolo Pira DOCG 2015



    Kann ich noch nicht sagen, da der Wein frühestens 2030 getrunken wird! Ich gehe davon aus, dass Roagna einen spitzen Barolo macht.
