Description

The 2005 Cannubi of Chiara Boschis, measures up to the reputation of the appellation and great vintage. Complex and strong, this wine takes us through a sensory journey. This intense red coloured with brick-red highlights 2005 Cannubi releases intense tertiary aromas and Morello cherry, prune, tobacco or even leather notes. On the palate, it offers good volume, velvety tannins and a finish that leaves vanilla and violet hints on the taste buds. 

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.
