2016 Luigi Pira "Serralunga" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1483611 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba draws its fruit from the comune, or village, of the appellation known for the power and depth of its wines. This pretty rendition offers deep, dark fruit with wild cherry and plum in leading roles. There is a vibrant supporting cast of mineral aromas, terracotta, licorice and dark spice. This wine is beautifully balanced, mirroring the best qualities of this classic vintage. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba is a gorgeous entry-level offering from Pira that shows the muscle that is so typical of Serralunga. Rose petal, mint, dried cherry, licorice anise and blood orange infuse the 2016 with tremendous aromatic and flavor complexity. Readers looking for an affordable, high-class Barolo will find that here. In a word: superb. The straight Barolo is a blend of lower-lying slopes of Marenca and Margheria, Rivette and Sorano, which makes its debut in this bottling in 2016. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

The 2016 vintage in Barolo is shaping up to be epic. The conditions that prevailed across much of Piedmont and Tuscany have resulted in unquestionably classic wines of monumental stature. Even the Barolos at the "village" level, such as this Serralunga from Luigi Pira should prove to be exceptionally long-lived.
