Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2010

This entry-level single vineyard Barolo is a firm step up in quality with its velvety palate of aromatic cinnamon, crunchy crabapple and sweet core of orchard fruit compote. In addition to its delicious fruit, it offers lots of freshness, poise and lift.

Producer

Luigi Pira

Like many present day winemakers in Piedmont, after years of selling grapes and bulk wine, the Pirafamily decided to go it alone. In 1990 they began producing their own label wine from their 8-hectare vineyard. Hiring renowned oenologist, Beppe Caviola, was one of their first steps. With lessthan 16 vintages under their belt, brothers Gianpaolo and Romolo have quickly established themselves as some of the most sought after producers in the region.Our annual visit to Gianpaolo Pira is always an adventure. Particularly as our Italian and Gianpaolo's English are extremely limited. Yet, like most cross cultural love affairs, ourcommunication just seems to work. Wine really does work magic in more ways than one.

Region

Barolo, Italy

With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy's finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes - Barolo, Monteforte d'Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba - though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished - an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
