Description

History

The Pira family has been winegrowers in Piedmont for generations and then became winemakers. Gigi Pira, cornerstone of the family, claimed that a quality wine starts from the selection of the vineyard. After Gigi’s death, production continuity was guaranteed by Chiara Boschis, the current owner, who produces Barolo together with her parents and brother. The production is about 40,000 bottles of the highest quality, recognized with 100/100 on some vintages of Barolo such as Cannubi and Via Nuova. The Pira family is very attached to tradition, in fact, Gigi Pira was the last historic producer to press the wines with his feet and to produce without the aid of modern means.

Grapes used

100% Nebbiolo

Production method

The Mosconi vineyard is one of the company’s oldest vineyards located in Monforte d’Alba, one of the most prestigious and highest areas of the Barolo area (about 400 m asl). The soil is composed of clayey marl and siliceous plates; all very important characteristics for the creation of a robust, balsamic Barolo suitable for ageing. The harvest takes place strictly by hand and after crushing and destemming of the grapes, we proceed to the traditional red vinification with long maceration on the skins. Subsequent refinement lasts for at least 2 years in small French oak barrels and for at least 1 more year in the bottle, depending on the vintage.

Alcohol content

15%

Tasting notes

The grapes come from vineyards located at an altitude between 200 and 450 m above sea level, an altitude which in itself gives a good aroma and thickness of the skins in order to create perfumed wines. The grapes are harvested by hand around mid-late October. The fresh grapes are destemmed and then fermented at a controlled temperature in contact with the skins for 25-30 days, sometimes with a submerged cap. The wine also carries out the malolactic fermentation and is then decanted into large Slavonian oak barrels and some French tonneaux for 24-30 months. A long refinement in the bottle will follow in order to stabilize the product and make it ready to be placed on the market.

Possible combinations

Ideal in combination with second courses of red meat or game, even very cooked ones, such as braised or baked duck, stews or meats flavored with Langhe truffles. Given the great complexity and aging capacity, it is also possible to wait a few years before consuming the bottle and in that case it becomes an incredible meditation wine, capable of offering very complex and refined nuances of flavors and aromas.
