Our Barbera d'Alba Superiore derives from the vinification of Barbera grapes, coming from our own vineyards. These are vineyards planted on Elvezian soils, which give structure and elegance enhanced by an aging in wood for about 1 year. The color is intense ruby red, tending to purplish and purplish. On the nose there are vinous hints of red and black fruits such as cherry, plum and blackberry. The palate is full and robust with a pleasant flavor of the typical red and black fruits, and a pleasant sensation of freshness. - Winery Note
The Boschis family purchased E. Pira & Figli in 1981, propelling the young Chiara into a role significantly different to that intended by her economics degree. The family was, until recently, proprietors of Barolo's historic Giacomo Borgogno estate (Chiara originally learnt her wine-making skills from her brothers) but she brought her considerable determination, charm, patience and confidence to bear on raising the quality and image of Pira to that which it enjoys today. Her philosophy is to craft wines that marry the extraordinary power of Barolo with approachability, promoting great aromatics, lush textures and elegance. This has been achieved through strict vineyard management, careful selection and impeccable vinification techniques. Beginning as one of only two female oenologists working in Barolo, Chiara is nowadays regarded as every bit the equal of her peers.
Chiara has recently been joined by her brother Giorgio, and the two have expanded their Barolo vineyards to now include Mosconi and Ravera in Monforte and Gabutti in Serralunga. - Importer Note
