2016 E. Pira Chiara Boschis "Via Nuova" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1465686 100 points Vinous

Outer quote mark In my opinion, the 2016 Barolo Via Nuova is the single greatest Barolo Chiara Boschis has made in her storied career. A monumental, thrilling wine, the Via Nuova captures all the best the vintage had to give. Explosive in the glass, with stunning aromatic depth, the 2016 is drop-dead gorgeous from the very first taste. Dark macerated cherry, lavender, spice, menthol and rose petal are kicked up a few notches from underlying veins of acidity and tannin that give the wine its energy and drive. The 2016 is a wine of extraordinary harmony, purity and finesse with an eternal finish. The 2016 Barolo Via Nuova is a blend of seven plots: Terlo, Liste, Paiagallo, Ravera di Monforte, Mosconi, Gabutti and Baudana. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of fruit from seven crus spread across Barolo, Monforte d'Alba and Serralunga d'Alba, the E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2016 Barolo Via Nuova is a polished and elegant wine that reflects all the classic characteristics of textbook Barolo. There are brambly aromas of woody red fruit, like pomegranate, followed by toasted hazelnut, licorice and grassy earth. The delineated tannins and the freshness of the acidity add to the depth and important layering of the wine. Following the best of Nebbiolo, the wine is weightless and powerful at the same time.

Outer quote mark Extremely perfumed and beautiful with crushed-strawberry, hazelnut and sandalwood aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and chewy with polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Pretty craftsmanship and structure. From organically grown grapes. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is expressive and complex, revealing cherry, strawberry, white pepper, iron and tar flavors, draped on a firmly structured, elegant frame. The refined tannins are assertive, yet overall this strikes a nice balance and lingers beautifully, echoing pure cherry, white pepper and mineral. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2021)
