2014 Barolo Pira, Roagna

2014 Barolo Pira, Roagna

Notes of wild herbs, sundried tomatoes, and rich cherries on the nose of this intense yet stunningly fresh Barolo. So intense and powerful, but yet also so lifted, with amazing complexity on the palate. There’s tar and blood orange, and an iron oxide note, too. Wonderful.

Tasting notes

The 2014 Barolo Pira is a very pretty wine, but it is also quite open, both in its aromatics, and structural feel, where the wine feels unusually ample. Dark spice, tobacco, worn-in leather and mint are nicely laced together. This is a superb effort for the year, but I would not plan on cellaring it for too long, as it is quite open for a young Barolo, by Roagna standards. Relative to the other wines in this lineup, the Pira comes across as a touch flat and lacking in body. Much of that is attributable to the vintage.
