2009 Barolo `Pira`
Along with the Barbaresco Paje this is the other signature wine of the domaine. It has phenomenal finesse and brightness and will seduce everyone who tastes it. Drink from 2015. Vines here were planted in 1937, maceration last 70-90 days. spends about 5 years in medium sized botte. Mint, Anise, leather and tobacco flavours dominate, it is lively, fresh with piercing acidity.
`The 2009 Barolo Pira is another pretty wine. Next to the 2009 Pajè, its rough equivalent in the range of Barbarescos, the Pira is a bit fresher and brighter, with redder tonalities in its fruit and lively, piercing acidity that is going to need a few years to integrate. Pine, crushed flowers, mint, anise and crushed rocks are all layered into the finish. There is so much to like here.` 93+ pts, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
