Description

The 2018 E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Cannubi is a world-class Barolo wine that exemplifies the best qualities of the Nebbiolo grape from the Cannubi vineyard in the Piedmont region of Italy.

The flavours of red fruit are complemented by a touch of spice, with a hint of oak and mineral notes on the finish.

The wine's acidity is well-balanced, adding a refreshing lift to the full-bodied palate. This is a wine of exceptional finesse and complexity, with a long, lingering finish that leaves a lasting impression of its impeccable quality. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now but will also age beautifully over the next two decades or more.

Overall, the 2018 E. Pira & Figli Chiara Boschis Cannubi is a remarkable wine that showcases the elegance, complexity, and potential of the Nebbiolo grape from the Cannubi vineyard, and demonstrates the winery's commitment to producing top-quality Barolo from the Piedmont region.

The E. Pira e Figli - Chiara Boschis 2018 Barolo Cannubi is a lovely wine with a classic playlist of true Nebbiolo aromas. This certified organic wine exhibits wild berry, rose, dried lilac and an earthy touch of white truffle. However, the floral aromas and the lifted fruit are the protagonists in this balanced expression. Chiara farms less than one hectare (just over 6,000 square meters) in the celebrated Cannubi MGA with ancient calcareous clay soils from the Miocene era. This is one of the best wines of the vintage.

The 2018 Barolo Cannubi is soft, open-knit and gracious, as wines from this vintage tend to be. Silky contours and pliant fruit add to its appeal and overall immediacy. The 2018 is a real charmer. It's understated personality will be easy to appreciate upon release. Sweet red cherry, cinnamon, mint, cedar and dried rose petal linger nicely, with pretty sweet floral notes that continue to open over time.

Tasting Profile

Nose
The olfactory scents are sweet, of ripe fruit (cherries, plums) and spices, accompanied by the classic balsamic note that distinguishes it (mint and eucalyptus).
Palate
On the palate it is warm, powerful, but pleasantly elegant. With an important structure and tannins as strong as it is soft.
