2016 E. Pira Chiara Boschis "Mosconi" Barolo

SKU #1522661 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A full-bodied, chewy 2016 with a solid structure of ripe fruit and intense tannins. Lots of plums, walnuts, hazelnuts and light chocolate. It’s very powerful. Very classic structure. From organically grown grapes. Needs time to resolve the powerful tannins. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The E Pira-Chiara Boschis 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a little wider and richer compared to the Cannubi, with bigger fruit, more sweetness, spice, grilled oregano and a touch of crushed hazelnut. Despite the wide net of aromas offered on the bouquet, this wine shows a very sharp and focused approach with elegantly linear tannins and matching acidity. There is a lifted quality to both the nose and the mouthfeel that gives this wine beautiful momentum and length. Mosconi is one of the headline vineyards of Monforte d'Alba. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Mosconi is a gorgeous wine made all the more remarkable given that Mosconi can't really be said to be a top-level site. Dark and imposing, the 2016 captures all the breadth and tannic clout that are such signatures of this site. This is an especially brooding, virile Barolo, but Chiara and Giorgio Boschis clearly brought out all the best the vineyard had to give. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A mix of cherry, menthol, loam and tobacco flavors are hung on the burly frame of this red. Though difficult to see this evolving, all of its elements seem to be in the right proportions, they are just not integrated yet. Fresh and focused. With air, the purity of the fruit is more evident. (BS) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The vivacious Chiara Boschis has been a modernist producer for 25 years, although she now uses far less new oak than in the past. She is best known for her Cannubi, but the Mosconi, from 1ha within this Monforte vineyard, can be just as fine in some vintages. The colour is deep for Barolo, the cherry and blackberry nose generous and opulent. It's a plump, rich, full-bodied and very concentrated wine that's assertive and youthful now - but in balance. Darker-fruited than most Barolos, it's structured, taut and long. (SB) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
