E. Pira & Figli (Chiara Boschis) Cannubi Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

$79.95

...This outstanding wine shows gorgeous inner and outer beauty. I am especially impressed with her 2009 edition... The balsam intensity is mind-blowing: menthol notes are woven together with ginger, cola, dried rosemary, pressed rose and licorice. The wine leaves a memorable trail of lasting elegance thanks to its finely polished tannins and silky texture. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Just look at that color, isn't that gorgeous? This is one of the reasons I love Nebbiolo, light yet powerful. Rose pedals, smoked bacon, sour cherries and cranberries, game, dust, hint of mushroom. Pretty closed nose. Huge palate attack, bone dry, dusty tannins, massive structure,nice acidity. Oak nicely integrated, tons of preserved prunes/plums and dried cherries, liquorice, really long finish 40s+, slightly bitter though, no heat detected. 2009 is a tough vintage for Barolo, very uneven ripening but Mrs Chiara Boschis nailed it, powerful+beautiful. 14.5% alc

Smell: fudge. Taste tanines. Acid. Amazing aftertaste. Great wine.
