2016 Barolo Mosconi, E Pira e Figli, Piedmont

Soaring aromatics of wild roses, tar, and mulberries swirl from the glass on this intense, powerful Mosconi. The palate is grippy and powerful, but there’s an elegance and vibrancy here that’s so hard to coax from Monforte. This is an astonishing bottle of wine: a masterpiece in the making. Will be breathtaking in 5-10 years time.

2016 Barolo Mosconi, E Pira e Figli, Piedmont
E Pira e Figli

The Pira family had been winemakers for generations. When Luigi Pira died in 1980, family friends, the Boschis, stepped in to take over, preserving the name of the estate. Young Chiara Boschis arrived with a vision: to make Barolos that show the Nebbiolo grape’s power and ageability, but are drinkable from an earlier stage. Now joined by her brother, she has achieved her goal. With her lightness of touch she creates intense yet elegant Barolos that have to be tried to be believed.
