Pure roses on the nose. Raspberry and lemon rind. So pure. Full body, ultra-fine tannins, powerful yet so ethereal and soul-touching. A fabulously crafted Cannubi. Better in 2020.
James Suckling
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.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Broad, with plenty of muscle to shore up the cherry, strawberry and earth flavors. The tannins are assertive for now, yet this remains fresh and long, if slightly hot on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2029. 800 cases made.

E. Pira & Figli - Chiara Boschis

Chiara Boschis is a true protagonist among the small, but driven group of women winemakers in the Langhe. Coming from a long lineage of viticulturists, she took the reins of E. Pira & Figli in 1990. Her parents purchased the estate in 1981 from an old wine producing family who had no heirs to take over the property. While she never wanted to change the winery’s name, she tastefully added her own. Her goal from the beginning has been to seamlessly unite the astonishing potential of Barolo, with approachable elegance, and bold, intense aromas. She achieves this goal, vintage after vintage, through rigorous vineyard management, meticulous selection, and impeccable vinification techniques such as shortened maceration, malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and aging in big oak barrels or barriques. In 2010, her brother, Giorgio joined her, and they now run this historical small wine cellar together. Today, the estate’s extremely limited production is crafted from eight and a half hectares of vineyards. Located only amongst the best hills of Monforte d'Alba, Serralunga d'Alba and Barolo, the family still cultivates a small plot in the famed Cannubi vineyard. The resulting wines are some of the most refined and delicate wines in Italy. Their collection is envied by many. ...

Grapes

The King of the Piedmont grapes, Nebbiolo makes some of the greatest reds in the world under the denominations of Barolo and Barbaresco. Thin-skinned, it produces wines that are light in colour but that pack a punch in terms of structure. Also high in acidity, they are renowned for their longevity and for many generations, they were aged for years in oak casks to tame their power. Today, ageing time has shortened in order to retain a greater amount of fruit. In addition to the area around Alba, it is found in other areas of northern Italy, such as Gattinara, where it is called Spanna. Like Sangiovese, there are some New World plantings but as of yet, their wines do not dazzle like those of Italy. ...
100% Nebbiolo
Piedmont

Piedmont

One of the greatest wine regions in the world in terms of wine quality (and its renowned cuisine and white truffles), Piedmont is also home to Slow Food, further indicating how essential both good wine and food are to this northern region. Most vineyards are planted on hillside terraces that rise and descend numerous villages. Its most important grape in terms of quality is Nebbiolo, the moderately thin-skinned variety that is capable of producing lighter coloured, but powerful and spellbinding Barolos and Barbarescos that beautifully accompany much of its unique cuisine. However, numerous other grapes such as Barbera and Dolcetto are also noteworthy. Whites can also be unique and delicious and include floral and peachy Arneis, Chablis-like Gave and the off-dry, semi-sparkling Moscato d’Asti.
