2016 Luigi Pira "Vigna Rionda" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1483616 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Showing linearity and focus, the Luigi Pira 2016 Barolo Vignarionda is slightly closed upon first inspection. If you go back to the wine hours after you have opened the bottle, you will find that it has beautifully transformed and evolved. That tiny point of initial reduction serves the wine well and reminds you that this classic vintage is one with exceptional aging potential. A 4,000-bottle release, this wine offers energy and resonance. It is partially aged in French barrique and partially in botte grande. (ML) 95+ Inner quote mark (7/2020)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Vignarionda is an alluring beauty. Macerated cherry, rose petal, mint, blood orange and pomegranate all run through this exotic, arrestingly beautiful Barolo. The 2016 is dense, wonderfully perfumed and just striking Finesse and power come together beautifully, showing all the pedigree of this site. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

K&L Notes

Pira was established in the 1950s and spent its early history first selling grapes and then bulk wine. In the early 1990s, it began to look toward quality instead of quantity. The winery was renovated and new equipment was installed. It produced its first Barolo in 1993, and soon acquired the three Serralunga crus which provide the Nebbiolo for its single vineyard Barolo wines: Rionda, Marenca, and Margheria. Pira Luigi avoids the use of chemicals in the vineyard, instead favoring natural farming practices that emphasize low yields.
