Description

Blush strawberry in colour, this is cool, calculating, quite juicy, with a round fruit character, darker, blackberry fruit and spice, but with great purity. Made in a vin de garde style, this is a bit more forward than the Cannubi.

E.Pira was one of Barolo’s most historical producers until the Boschis family bought it in 1980, transforming it overnight into one of its most modern. Chiara Boschis is at the helm, producing fruit-forward wines that give you more of everything: more extract, colour, acidity, alcohol and oak. She mollycoddles her organic vineyards as if they’re her children. Recently joined by her brother, Giorgio, the estate has now grown to 8.5 hectares.
