2015 E. Pira Chiara Boschis "Via Nuova" Barolo

SKU #1428137 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This delivers a fresh and vibrant impression on the nose with ripe red cherries and a deep-set, rose perfume. The palate has impressive power and focus with chiseled, driving tannins that cut a straight line of pure, red and black-cherry flavor. Long and assertive in 2015. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Once again, the 2015 Barolo Via Nuova shows why the blending of several sites was the approach favored by Barolo producers until the 1960s, when the fascination for single-vineyard wines started to take off. Maybe the old-times knew something after all. Silky and fragrant, with exceptional balance, the 2015 is positively striking. Medium in body and layered, the 2015 has a very bright future. What a gorgeous wine it is. The Via Nuova was aged in equal parts cask and barrique. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (2/2019)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Barolo Via Nuova is a blend of fruit from Barolo, Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba, and each site adds elegance, power and structure, respectively. The wine's taste profile in 2015 emerges as very minty and balsamic on first nose. Delicate notes of forest berry and wild cherry are followed by cooling medicinal herb. This warm vintage also adds a touch of cured meat or leather at the very back that hints at the heat of the vintage. Overall, this is the most accessible and near-term of Chiara Boschis's three Barolos reviewed this year. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers pure rose perfume, backed by kirsch, raspberry and tobacco flavors that are tangy due to the vivid acidity. Eucalyptus and wild herb accents add depth as this tightens up on the lingering finish. Detailed and refined overall. (BS) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

The Via Nuova vines were more recently (2010) incorporated into a larger vineyard site called Terlo. As a tribute to the former site and to the older generation who blended Barolo from many vineyards in contrast to the more recent trend of single site wines, Chiara Boschis craftes this exquisite Barolo The grapes are sourced from sites in Barolo, Serralunga and Monforte and the blend ages in a combination large and small barrels. The blend assures rich fruit, excellent structure and overall complexity. Although it's approachable today, it's sure to improve in the cellar.
