2016 E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis ‘Via Nuova’ Barolo

from Piedmont, Italy

$150

Barolo Via Nuova is 100% Nebbiolo grown from 6 different vineyards: Terlo and Liste in Barolo, Ravera e Mosconi in Monforte d’Alba and Gabutti and Baudana in Serralunga d’Alba. This classic Barolo blend combines structure with elegance and complexity, emphasizing the particularities of each vineyard site. This wine can be a bit timid when first opened, some time in the glass (or decanter) will open this wine up and reveal Via Nuova’s alluring ethereal floral and fruit perfumes.

“In my opinion, the 2016 Barolo Via Nuova is the single greatest Barolo Chiara Boschis has made in her storied career. A monumental, thrilling wine, the Via Nuova captures all the best the vintage had to give. Explosive in the glass, with stunning aromatic depth, the 2016 is drop-dead gorgeous from the very first taste. Dark macerated cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and rose petal are kicked up a few notches from underlying veins of acidity and tannin that give the wine its energy and drive. The 2016 is a wine of extraordinary harmony, purity and finesse with an eternal finish.”Vinous, 100 points

“It was a very exciting time when I started. This group of friends and I, the “Barolo boys” as they’re called now, were always exchanging suggestions and ideas. We wanted to make Barolo the best we could.” says Chiara Boschis, owner of E Pira e Figli.

“I remember in 1994, Giorgio (Rivetti) and I went around at night to green harvest so that the neighbors wouldn’t see how many bunches we were cutting. When my father saw the next day he said I was throwing away money, he was traditional and didn’t understand. But you know, I think when you want to do something completely different, you have to do it your own way.”

E Pira e Figli is a key player in the history of Barolo. The Pira family, whose members have been vignerons for generations, started producing and bottling wine at the end of the 19th century, receiving immediate recognition for their stellar quality.

When the Pira lineage ended tragically with the death of Luigi Pira, the estate was sold to the Boschis family, of Giacomo Borgogno FigIi. Chiara Boschis took the reins in 1990 with a clear vision of what she wanted to accomplish; to marry the extra­ordinary power of Barolo with approachability, enticing elegance, and lush, intense aromas. She vinifies exclusively from proprietary vineyards, located in the very best crus of Barolo: Cannubi, San Lorenzo, Via Nuova and Mosconi, for a grand total of 32 acres.

Annual production is a miniscule 5,000 cases. In the time Chiara has run the estate, she has quickly become a ‘Superwoman’ in the area, as one of only a few female winemakers in the Langhe. Her wines are also no strangers to the limelight, regularly garnering high praise from international publications.

Chiara is a farmer first. As a winemaker, she is a master of balance, crafting finessed and sophisticated wines that are some of the most aromatically dynamic expressions of Barolo today.
