E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Cannubi Barolo 2012
- Red Wine
The 2012 Barolo Cannubi shows dark fruit nuances, sweet flavors and slightly astringent tannins. The vintage holds back in terms of overall complexity compared to past editions that showed more depth, even at this young stage in their evolution. This is a common trait across the Cannubi cru in 2012. What the wine does offer, however, is a plump and upfront sense of dark fruit with pretty notes of rose petal and grilled herb. - WA
E. Pira & Figli (Chiari Boschis) is a small wine estate in Barolo. It makes a range of single-vineyard Nebbiolo wines from several of the Barolo crus, as well as a Barbera d'Alba and a Dolcetto d'Alba. The original estate consisted of just 2.5 hectares (6 acres) of vineyards ??mostly in the Cannubi and Cannnubi San Lorenzo cru vineyards. These two vineyards supply fruit for the estate's Barolo Cannubi wine and its Barbera d'Alba. The remaining half-hectare is in Via Nuova (on the Terlo hill), providing grapes for another single-vineyard Barolo.
