TASTING NOTES

The 2008 Barolo La Pira wafts from the glass with sweet red cherries, plums, tobacco, cinnamon and leather. This is an unusually supple, juicy Roagna Barolo with tons of near and medium-term appeal. Today the fruit is front and centre, while the tannins are beautifully integrated, especially for a young Barolo. A kick of acidity lingers on the finish, but this is still a pretty open and approachable wine.
