E. Pira e Figli (Chiara Boschis) 2007 Cannubi Nebbiolo (Barolo)

  1. $110
Bright and tonic, with vibrant fruit tones of cassis and dried raspberry followed by exotic spice and smoked bacon, this is an elegant and complex Barolo. After a while in the glass, you’ll notice those fine mineral tones that characterize the Cannubi cru and that give this wine both backbone and personality.  — M.L.  (9/1/2011)

E. Pira e Figli (Chiara Boschis) 2006 Cannubi Nebbiolo (Barolo)

  1. $95
Here is a beautifully extracted and voluptuous Barolo from the Cannubi cru that would pair with tender veal shank, slow cooked until falling off the bone. Black cherry, spice, root beer and fragrant earthy tones all appear on the nose and the wine closes with tight, firm structure. Cellar age ten years or more.  — M.L.  (12/1/2010)

E. Pira e Figli (Chiara Boschis) 2008 Barbera (Barbera d'Alba Superiore)

  1. $31
One year of careful oak aging has helped to shape a very attractive bouquet loaded with Christmas spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and bright cherry. The wood element is still evident but will most likely integrate with a bit more time in the bottle.  — M.L.  (9/1/2010)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30
Nice raspberry and blueberry fruit on the nose but turns lean and tart in the mouth and finishes with a blast of untamed acidity. A wine for acid freaks. Drink now.  — W.E.  (2/1/2010)
